One other thing: would be good to agree how we deal with updates to that
repo. The users of numpy-vendor can be counted on one hand at the moment,
so we probably should be less formal about it then for our other repos. How
about everyone can push simple doc and maintenance updates directly, and
more interesting changes go through a PR that the author can merge himself
after a couple of days? That at least ensures that everyone who follows the
repo gets notified on nontrivial changes.
