In my experience, that list may be quite out of date. For instance, the
web site lists the current version of CERNLIB as 97a  (there have been
at least annual releases since 1997) and doesn't recognize that it's been
released under GPL .
Additionally, they seem unresponsive -- I sent them an email several
months ago to note the location of my still-unofficial Debian packages 
and never got a reply back (and they still say at  that no Debian
package is available for CERNLIB).
