[Lapack] LAPACK licensing (fwd)

LAPACK is a freely-available software package. It is available from netlib
via anonymous ftp and the World Wide Web at .
Thus, it can be included in commercial software packages (and has been). We
only ask that proper credit be given to the authors.

Like all software, it is copyrighted. It is not trademarked, but we do ask
the following:

If you modify the source for these routines we ask that you change the name
of the routine and comment the changes made to the original.

We will gladly answer any questions regarding the software. If a
modification is done, however, it is the responsibility of the person who
modified the routine to provide support.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [Lapack] LAPACK licensing


I have a question about LAPACK licensing. Can I make some modifications in 
the LAPACK and distribute modified code under terms I choose on my own? Or 
should I distribute it under the same terms as original code? I think that 
triple MPL/GPL/LGPL license more suits my needs than 3-clause BSD license 
used in LAPACK. But can I relicense it?

With best regards, Sergey Bochkanov.

P.S. Sorry for my English.
