BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines) is a set of efficient
routines for most of the basic vector and matrix operations.
They are widely used as the basis for other high quality linear
algebra software, for example lapack and linpack.  This
implementation is the Fortran 77 reference implementation found
at netlib.
This package contains a set of programs which test the integrity of an
installed blas-compatible shared library. These programs may therefore be used
to test the libraries provided by the blas package as well as those provided
by the libatlas3-base and libopenblas-base packages. The programs are
dynamically linked -- one can explicitly select a library to test by setting
the alternative, or by using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_PRELOAD
environment variables. Likewise, one can display the library selected using
the ldd program in an identical environment.

[ Alastair McKinstry ]
* Add pkg-config file blas-netlib.pc and alternatives. Closes: #764372.

blas (1.2.20110419-9) unstable; urgency=medium
* On any-i386 and m68k, compile test programs with -ffloat-store. This
has become necessary with gfortran 4.9 (maybe because the
-fno-whole-file option has been removed, though I don't really
understand the interaction of both options). (Closes: #762484)

blas (1.2.20110419-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop obsolete code in maintainer scripts to deal with the transition =>
* Remove Sylvestre Ledru from Uploaders. Thanks Sylvestre for your work!
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6, no changes needed.
* Add empty arch:any package libblas-common. All BLAS/LAPACK
implementations will now depend on this package. The goal is to make
BLAS implementations multi-arch safe by preventing the
co-installability of, say, libblas3:amd64 and libatlas3-base:i386. See
#760936 for more details. On the longer term, the right solution is of
course to make BLAS implementations M-A:same.

blas (1.2.20110419-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Make sure that -mieee is used when compiling on alpha
* Restore -fno-whole-file and -ffloat-store (the latter only for *-i386
and m68k, and only for some files), otherwise some tests break

blas (1.2.20110419-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Use my address
* Remove obsolete DM-Upload-Allowed flag
* Bump to debhelper compat level 9
* Remove pre-squeeze Conflicts/Replaces/Provides
* Use quilt to manage the patch to upstream sources
* Rewrite debian/rules using dh
* Test programs are now installed under /usr/lib/libblas, for consistency with
the library objects
* Inject flags from dpkg-buildflags (Closes: #700495)
* Switch VCS to git
* Improve long description of libblas-test
* Bump to Standards-Version 3.9.4, no changes needed
* Ship in libblas-test a script for running all BLAS tests
* Register cinterface.pdf into doc-base, and fix the doc-base section
for the BLAS FAQ
