Abstract Dense (numerical) Linear Algebra plays an important role in scientific computing, and is typically implemented by the BLAS/LAPACK libraries. In Debian linux, these libraries have been well-organized and integrated into the system, forming a tiny ecosystem with the help of a runtime switching mechanism. To date, there are still many aspects from which this tiny ecosystem can be improved. For example, it lacks documentation and lintian checks; Some state-of-the-art implementations are still not incorporated yet; Deprecated components are still present in the packages. These items altogether requires a considerable amount of time, energy and skill. The goal of the project is to enhance the ecosystem from the mentioned aspects.
