Third-party/vendor package managers

Below is a partial list of third-party and operating system vendor package managers containing SciPy packages.

These packages are not maintained by the SciPy developers; this list is provided only as a convenience. These packages may not always provide the most up-to-date version of the software, and may be unmaintained.

IMPORTANT: If you experience problems with these packages (especially those related to installation/build errors), please report the problem to the package maintainer first, rather than to the SciPy mailing lists.
