[Numpy-discussion] linux wheels coming soon

Hi all,

Just a heads-up that we're planning to upload Linux wheels for numpy
to PyPI soon. Unless there's some objection, these will be using
ATLAS, just like the current Windows wheels, for the same reasons --
moving to something faster like OpenBLAS would be good, but given the
concerns about OpenBLAS's reliability we want to get something working
first and then worry about making it fast. (Plus it doesn't make sense
to ship different BLAS libraries on Windows versus Linux -- that just
multiplies our support burden for no reason.)
