   - 11-Sep-2019 - Emails sent to the NumPy-Discussion and PyData mailing
   lists with links to the online version of the NEP.

Only one user (speaking for a group of 12 or so) expressed a preference for
keeping the functions in NumPy, and that user acknowledged "Probably not a
huge inconvenience if we would have to use another library". (The NEP

 Several other users were in favor of removing them.  Among the current
NumPy developers who have expressed an opinion, all are in favor of
removing the functions.

There have been no additional email responses since the reminder was sent
on September 11.

In accordance with NEP 0, I propose that the status of NEP 32 be changed to
*Accepted*. If there are no substantive objections within 7 days from this
email, then the NEP will be accepted; see NEP 0 for more details (
