[Numpy-discussion] Replacing paver with invoke

HI All,

I've been looking around for something easier to use than paver for running
shell commands. Fabric looked like a possibility, but it doesn't support
Python 3 and in currently in the midst of a rewrite, not least because it
has become burdened with technical dept. Invoke
<http://docs.pyinvoke.org/en/0.12.2/> splits off fabric's local
functionality, supports Python3, and looks to be in active, if not yet
finished, development. It is python but with a make flavor. Indeed, I
wonder if it might possible to use it in place of make for the
documentation. It also makes it easier to work with the output of shell
commands, which would be helpful for making lists of authors and commits
for releases. In any case, I thought it worth raising the topic on the list
to see if others had suggestions or forceful disagreements.
