OK, let me know when the packages are updated and I'll make it a
priority to test and commit.
I pushed an update to LAPACK 3.9.0 now, with change to download from
github. Feel free to have a go.
I also pushed an update to openblas to 0.3.7. I noticed one bit of
possible trouble: OpenBLAS is at LAPACK 3.8.0 API now. Update to 3.9.0
is in git repo, but not released. This is where we have to be careful
not to break things when updated code from netlib (C API wrappers)
expects functions being present that a BLAS implementation misses.

I am testing if lapacke does like the current situation … seems fine.
Now cblas … seems OK, too.

Alrighty then,


OK, thanks.  As we don't have a committed openblas at this time, I don't think it's a big concern.  As long as the netlib blas upgrade doesn't break anything we should be fine until openblas catches up.

I'll have a look at it probably within the next week.
