matplotlib enhancement proposals (MEPs)
MEPs are used to track the progress of larger changes to matplotlib that are not easily encapsulated into a single pull request.
New MEPs should be created as PRs into the documentation.

- Primary Project website: http://matplotlib.org/
Current merge policy:
- So rst changes only go on v1.5.0-doc and we should manually rebuild the posted docs
- Bug fixes go on v1.5.x just in case
- Bug fixes plus style go on to v2.x
- Master is fair game for anything at this point
- And all those branches should be merged up regularly: V1.5.0-doc into v1.5.x into v2.x into master
