[Numpy-discussion] shipping sdists without generated C sources from Cython code

Hi all,

There are several open issues about people not being able to compile the
latest release with Python 3.8 betas due to our release containing
generated C code with a too old version of Cython. This happened for Python
3.7 as well. With the Python packaging system having improved that build
dependencies are no longer insane, I think we should stop shipping the
generated C sources.

We've discussed this a couple of times before on GitHub, but I've now
opened a PR for this (https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/14453) so I
thought it would be good to mention here in case anyone sees an issue with
doing this.
