Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-08-04 14:12:28 UTC
$ find /usr/lib*/python*/site-packages/numpy | xargs qfile -o

i.e. tests are installed non-compiled, and therefore files are compiled at runtime and are orphaned.

    dev-python/numpy: disable "fix" for bug 590464
    It's not clear what is creating the pyc files, and this is a pretty bad
    hack around it.

Then why is it shipped? Should the fix be not to install them?
