Package: python-scipy
Version: 0.6.0-11
Severity: 

There is a package python-scipy-core in the archive that python-scipy
conflicts and replaces.  I have filed Bug#48845 to ask that
python-scipy-core be removed. Please can python-scipy provide a transition
package for users upgrading from etch to lenny.

You probably meant #488451:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=488451

Thanks for the bug report.

See here:

http://wiki.debian.org/python-scipy

it's deprecated, but there are more packages that need to be removed,
e.g. python-f2py.

Please let us know if you'd like to help. I myself have time to make
sure python-scipy and python-numpy are in good shape, but currently I
don't have time for all the other packages.

Yes, I am saying 1). Note that I cannot change the description of
python-scipy-core, as I don't have upload rights for that package (see
the maintainer and uploaders fields)

Thanks. :)

The only two relevant packages now are the python-numpy and
python-scipy and they should be in a pretty good shape now.
