[Python-modules-team] Please use a transition for new python-numpy versions

Hi Sandro,

python-numpy has a lot of rdepends and new numpy versions.  In the past
every version bump of numpy has broken some of these.  I'd propose to
use the well established transition procedure[1] for new numpy versions
specifically if you intend to upload RC candidates this should not just
be done to unstable.

My actual problems are #917693 and #918213.  I've contacted upstream
about this but it is hard to expect them to respond quickly about issues
with a numpy RC candidate.

Thanks for considering
