We are currently working on a multiple precision version of LAPACK,
and hope to release it within a year. You are welcome to take LAPACK
and modify it for your own purposes, under the guidelines of the
mBSD software license.

Dear LAPACK/BLAS team,
First of all, thanks for providing and maintaining very nice packages.
I'm really appreciated. I wrote this e-mail for asking copyright
issue of my software, Multiple precision arithmetic BLAS,
which I released today.
My name is Nakata, Maho who is a postdoctoral researcher at RIKEN
I'm interested in making a multiple precision arithmetic version
of BLAS and LAPACK, mainly for solving difficult semi definite programming
Recently our first multiple precision arithmetic version of SDP (SDPA-GMP)
has been released [1, 2].
In that software, I translated some routines which are needed coding SDPA
of BLAS and LAPACK by GMP (http://gmplib.org/), using C++.
Then I wrote multiple precision version of BLAS based on BLAS.
Almost all routines are a dump translation of your BLAS code.
So - I'd like to ask you about copyright issue.
* Is it legally ok for you release my software in public in the present form
* Do you think I should add you as copyright holder?
(then I should ask you about licensing issue)
