Clean up the docs a bit. See #2762.
DOC: remove an obsolete file
no objection here
should we write something to the dev mailing list? "No SEPS are currently used."
(I could write a "governance in scipy" message. :) with the message "works pretty well"
can we hold off on that for a few days? @ EuroScipy is a good time to discuss things like governance in person.
I think Josef was joking ...
As the 'governance' person though - for the record - it does look as though scipy is working pretty well as an organization at the moment. And maybe that means it's a good time to nail down a gentle governance model that can protect that for the future.
I know he was joking in the last sentence. The first one is serious though, and may trigger the second one.
I agree with your take on things @matthew-brett, some nailing down may be in order.
@rgommers no problem with me,
I would have just written a rough description, that github issues and PRs work like SEPs only with more code details and not all upfront.
@matthew-brett joking only with the title. But as a status update (de-facto, not de-jure) (from my perspective as semi-retired scipy developer)
I think a few items could be clarified in a discussion, but overall the "governance" depends a lot on the number of developers involved and their "personalities" and cannot be much mailed (oops typo, nailed) down IMO.
Aha - the discussion begins!
I better switch to my statsmodels tabs and open windows.
(I think there were some PRs there that I was supposed to review :)
.... (hearing a tab close)
I'll defer to people with more organizational gravitas to propose removing nontechnical content.
@argriffing I think we can still merge this soon, no problem. Cleaning up docs/website/stuff-like-this is quite useful.
OK re-opening. Maybe these meta issues like the development of processes of development of scipy have been discussed at euro-scipy?
After a few beers I'm afraid the current model has been classified as a tyranny:)
More seriously, we did discuss a roadmap to 1.0 in some detail. I'll try to post something coherent soon. Processes were not discussed in as much detail, but I think we can pick up that discussion also.
OK going to merge this PR, because removing this file is the only sensible thing to do. It doesn't contain anything useful; there never was a scipy.preview but instead scikits were created.
