I also have the feeling that nothing would change; moreover, I also think
that CA can be built (and work) with scotchmetis instead of metis.
At the moment I'm not completely sure wether linking against metis is
really required or not; I've also asked on the forum, but had no
So, when 10.4 will come out, I think I'll try in the first place
to build with scotchmetis, and if this will work - bith the compilation
and the validation tests - I'll also try to build without scotchmetis.
If metis/metis-edf is only called via an external program, we could
upload code-aster in the main section, upload metis-edf on non-free and
make it a recommended/suggested dependance... right?
