Sorry for a delay in my response.

Thank you. However, do you mean reenterability or thread-safety? These
issues are often mixed up. And another question: in your opinion, how
one could use a reenterable (or thread-safe) version of glpk?

Not strongly against, but it would make more difficult to maintain the
package. Besides, glpk is free software, so everyone can change it in
the way he/she needs to.

As to patches, I see three ways:

i) post them to the help-glpk mailing list as a gzipped attachment,
providing necessary information in the message body and a subject line
suitable for the search;

ii) add a topic to and include the
patches there;

iii) officially glpk is hosted on GNU Savannah;
see (though currently I don't use
this service). I could add you to the project member list, so you could
upload patches to the project repository.
