Hi Riku,

I did see it and it seemed very reasonable.  I am waiting to hear about
a suggested order in which the blas-depending packages should be uploaded.

Cernlib-related components can be uploaded in the following order once
blas, lapack (and ideally atlas) are taken care of:

mclibs / paw (these two are independent)
geant321 / mn-fit (these are independent but must each follow paw)

I'd prefer to do the uploads myself since these packages are rather finicky.

best regards,
