Just in case you're not aware there are separate mailing lists for numpy
and matplotlib, presumably scipy as well, should you have specific
questions. Further matplotlib is now at version 1.2rc3 with Python 3
support, yippee. Combine that with the recently released Python 3.3 and
it should make one hell of a tool kit :)
