Yes, I've connected GSL to AMPL/MP (https://github.com/ampl/mp), an
open-source library for mathematical programming, where it can be used
both by nonlinear solvers and modeling systems that support the AMPL
solver interface. There was also considerable interest in CMake
support for GSL (https://github.com/ampl/gsl) that I contributed
earlier although I don't have details who is using this (other than
myself).

I don't have any specific requests myself in terms of new functionality.

Either way is fine with me.
Thanks for your great work, Patrick.
P.S. Sorry if you received this message twice, sourceware.org has
rejected the HTML email so I'm resending as plain text.
Best regards,
