The build in question is numpy-1.3.0-2.fc11.
The reason I'd like to have this build included in F-11 is that it splits out f2py as a subpackage, which was requested to help reduce the total size of the OLPC spin.
This should not be a disruptive change, as a large proportion of the packaged depending on numpy just depend on numpy, not f2py, and all dependent packages have had a bug filed against them asking the maintainers to check if their package really needs f2py, or just numpy, and be ready to update deps accordingly. I will be going through the remaining tickets to aid in this process.
If this change is not made, it won't kill any kittens, but the OPLC spin will be slightly larger for one release cycle.
Testing so far amounts to what has been done in the aforementioned bugs.
The build is done for dist-f11-updates-candidate.
Risk seems negligible, +1
