Hello Paul and all,

Paul Garlick <address@hidden> skribis:

> Hi Efraim, Hi Eric, Hi Ludo,
> Thank you for your comments on the patch series for the FEniCS Project
> packages.  I have been able to make changes to address all of the
> suggestions with one exception, noted below.
> The main differences between the original and v2 patches are:
> i) python-mpi4py is now part of (gnu packages mpi)
> ii) python-petsc4py is now part of (gnu packages maths)
> iii) python-slepc4py is now part of (gnu packages maths)
> iv) temporary directory changes use 'with-directory-excursion'
> v) 'substitute*' is used in preference to 'with-atomic-file-replacement'
> vi) the Guix 'catch' package is used in preference to the bundled version
> vii) the 'python-fenics-dolfin' package has been renamed 'fenics'
> viii) the 'fenics' package has an updated home-page and synopsis
> The remaining suggestion was in the 'fenics-dolfin' package:
>> +                   (string-append
>> +                    "set(CTEST_CUSTOM_TESTS_IGNORE "

>> +                    "demo_bcs_mpi "
>> +                    "demo_eigenvalue_serial "
>> +                    "demo_eigenvalue_mpi "
>> +                    "demo_navier-stokes_serial "

Thanks a lot for taking the time to address the comments we made on this
patch series.  I’ve applied the whole series on ‘master’; everything
lints and builds for me on x86_64-linux (there are new versions of the
PETSc and SLEPSc bindings available, BTW.)

Thank you!
