[SciPy-User] request for a volunteer with devops/sysadmin skills, SciPy conda-forge
We have never had a working Windows build on conda-forge for SciPy. This is a bit painful, since it means that pretty much all SciPy/PyData users on Windows can't go "all conda-forge", and mixing the defaults and conda-forge channels is fairly fragile.
The solution is now a lot closer, since rather than a Fortran compiler project it's now a devops project: Intel provided permission and a license to use the Intel Fortran compiler, which is the best way to build SciPy on Windows. So "all" that's needed is set that up on a VM somewhere and connect it to conda-forge.
