Motivated by gh-6703, which referred to this TODO list in a PR.
The list hasn't been touched in years though, and shouldn't live
inside the codebase anyway.

+1 for merging as is.

Does this list have anything worth opening an enhancement request ticket for?

I never heard of the quade test http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/software/dataplot/refman1/auxillar/quade.htm

I think all (or almost all?) the others are in scipy or statsmodels (or in a PR for statsmodels, e.g. multisample comparison of proportion or rates)

what I'd like to see in scipy.stats (possibly biased and conflict of interest):

  • (very) popular functions that are often used standalone, the typical example are t-tests, where duplication between scipy and statsmodels is not a problem.
  • functions where technical issues dominate, typical example fisher's exact test and kendall tau. I'm just glad that I don't have to maintain them and scipy as a stronger numerical developer and user base than statsmodels. There are a few more good-to-have functions that require numerical efficient implementation to be useful (and competitive to R in terms of speed, the Os)
  • topics were scipy has good or very good coverage: nonparametric tests (besides, of course, distribution)

for basic statistics the boundary has been more between scipy.stats and numpy, and not so much with statsmodels
