Most of the suggestions thus far seem eminently
sensible.  And continued development is essential
to any software project -- otherwise the codebase
will stagnate, quietly but surely.

I'll pick out a couple of items that stood out and
then indicate my potential contribution.

 * making GLPK thread safe is regularly
   requested and should be addressed

 * shifting to 'git' and a code hosting site
   (GitHub or Savanna, for example) for this
   development fork is essential -- which
   then begs the question, why not move the
   entire development effort to the same

I don't have sufficient background in linear
solvers or concurrent programming to contribute
much.  But I will create a wikibook page, keep a
list of papers and similar, and try and summarize
the discussion.  I am also happy to be a
non-technical 'git' maintainer (meaning I have
no desire to approve code commits from others).

It is important, and possibly vital, that this
development effort succeed.

best wishes, Robbie
