[Numpy-discussion] Memory leak?

Just to chime in here about the SciPy Superpack... this distribution tracks
the master branch of many projects, and then puts out releases, on the
assumption that master contains pristine code, I guess. I have gone down
strange rabbit holes thinking that a particular bug was fixed already and
the user telling me a version number that would confirm that, only to
discover that the superpack actually packaged matplotlib about a month
prior to releasing a version.

I will not comment on how good or bad of an idea it is for the Superpack to
do that, but I just wanted to make other developers aware of this to keep
them from falling down the same rabbit hole.

Cheers!
Ben Root
