Well, the U. of Oregon again failed your ISP's SPF test so my message to
your linux.com address was again rejected. Sheesh.

Interesting. Wonder why the original message didn't make it there.

I keep python2 itself updated when a new version comes out because some
applications, such as grass, still have not migrated to python3. My use is
now all python3 so I don't bother upgrading python2 libraries.

I've now no specific need for numpy3 and scipy3, but being 4 minor versions
behind current seems a bit too much.
