today I've run the test suite with the serial version; the results are
good, some tests are failing, and I think that most of them are failing
because of a bug arising when using gfortran to compile:
So, apart from the missing mpirun_template file needed for the
compilation of the parallel version (that is already being resolved),
maybe we are ready to upload the package? I'm not expert in debian
packages, and I wold really like to know how good a package must be to
become part of the distribution... e.g. the package is not yet lintian
clean: does it have to pass lintian tests to enter into Debian?
The package has also some minor issues, regarding only the running of
the validation cases: are those issues to be fixed before uploading, or
can we live with a package with some bugs?
