Hi all,

What is the official spelling of NumPy/Numpy/numpy? 

The documentation is not consistent and it mixes both NumPy and Numpy. For example, the reference manual uses both spellings in the introduction paragraph (http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/):

    "This reference manual details functions, modules, and objects included in Numpy, describing what they are and what they do. For learning how to use NumPy, see also NumPy User Guide."

However, in all docs taken together "NumPy" is most frequently used (74%):

% find . -name "*.rst" -exec grep Numpy -ow {} \; | wc -l
% find . -name "*.rst" -exec grep NumPy -ow {} \; | wc -l

I also reported it as an issue: https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/7986
