we propose formally accepting the NumPy enhancement proposal 29:
"Recommend Python and Numpy version support as a community policy
available at: https://numpy.org/neps/nep-0029-deprecation_policy.html
If there are no objections within a week it may be accepted. This
proposal is a recommendation to the larger ecosystem and thus should
receive attention and acceptance from a wide audience.
However, lets try to keep discussions on the NumPy mailing list.
The most important points from the Abstract and Implementation sections
"This NEP recommends that all projects across the Scientific Python
ecosystem adopt a common “time window-based” policy for support of
Python and NumPy versions. Standardizing a recommendation for project
support of minimum Python and NumPy versions will improve downstream
project planning. …"
"We suggest that all projects adopt the following language into their
This project supports:
* All minor versions of Python released 42 months prior to the
project, and at minimum the two latest minor versions.
* All minor versions of numpy released in the 24 months prior to the
project, and at minimum the last thee minor versions."
