Yes exactly. Availability of NumPy Linux wheels on PyPI is definitely something
I would suggest adding to the release notes. Hopefully this will help trigger
a general availability of wheels in the numpy-ecosystem :)

In the case of Travis CI, their VM images for Python already have a version
of NumPy installed, but having the latest version of NumPy and SciPy etc
available as Linux wheels would be very nice.



As an aside, PyPI seems to be having trouble displaying the main NumPy
page https://pypi.python.org/pypi/numpy at the moment (Error 404 page):
