I saw a contrib directory in the gsl library.
Can we put extensions packages in that directory ?
So peoples downloading gsl could have a direct access to all extensions ?
It could ease the process of building packages with thoses extension for the different distributions.
A sort of libgsl-extra package, identical for all distributions.

why not creating a special prefix for function in the packages like gsl_extra_... .
Extension could maturate in that directory and then if the quality is enought it could migrate inside gsl by just renaming all
gsl_extra_ into gsl_ and moving the directory to the gsl root?
