[SciPy-dev] umfpack scikit
Thu Feb 7 07:34:19 CST 2008
I have the first version of the scikit ready but it seems I have not
rights to commit (username 'rc'). Can somebody help please?
Concerning the umfpack files from scipy.splinalg.dsolve, I would let
them in place for some transition period. I will add something like the
code below to linsolve.py:
if isUmfpack and noScikit:
warn( 'scipy.splinalg.dsolve.umfpack has moved, install
scikits.umfpack instead', DeprecationWarning )
The scikit now contains the same code that was in
scipy.splinalg.dsolve.umfpack, I did not include the GPL-ed umfpack
sources. What is your opinion?
1. Let the wrappers BSD and install umfpack libraries separately as it
2. or include everything and change the scikit license to GPL.
I am more for option 1., as on my system (Gentoo Linux) umfpack
libraries exist as a standard package and the installation is trivial.
This is IMHO true on other systems too. I also like BSD license more for
