Hi all,
Sorry I needed to have a little break. numpy1.6+ is not compatible with sage
at the moment:
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/11334
so don't try it. I suspect numpy wants to upgrade to 1.6.1 for you for the
following reason:
1) you put numpy in your package.keywords file
2) numpy is part of your world set. It is upgraded independently of any
dependency requirement. The fact that it is pulled just by D is
somewhat a bug
in portage  although there could be a web of dependencies leading to numpy.
emerge puNv couchdb probably won't pick it.
If you downgraded from numpy1.6.x to 1.5.1 don't forget to rebuild scipy.
