Well, I may have overlooked the following issue before, however:

while I just glanced at the source codes quickly and I have not examined
this package yet, now I have some concern about this package so I want to
ask spot.

@ spot:
Would you check some codes I write below?
A. 
packages/anasazi/epetra/util/ModeLaplace/BlockPCGSolver.cpp or so
These files have the license terms like below:
------------------------------------------------------------
// The distribution of this software follows also the rules defined in
Trilinos.
// This notice shall be marked on any reproduction of this software, in whole
or
// in part.
//
// Under terms of Contract DE-AC04-94AL85000, there is a non-exclusive
// license for use of this work by or on behalf of the U.S. Government.
//
// This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
// WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
// MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
-------------------------------------------------------------
I am not a lawyer and know almost nothing about US law. Then
what does this "Contract DE-AC04-94AL85000" mean?

B. Perhaps more issue:
Trilinos_version.h
packages/fei/base/FEI_Implementation.cpp
and even more:

These files have the license terms like below:
/*--------------------------------------------------------------------*/
/*    Copyright 2005 Sandia Corporation.                              */
/*    Under the terms of Contract DE-AC04-94AL85000, there is a       */
/*    non-exclusive license for use of this work by or on behalf      */
/*    of the U.S. Government.  Export of this program may require     */
/*    a license from the United States Government.                    */
/*--------------------------------------------------------------------*/
Especially I am concerned about the sentence "Export of this program
may require a license from..". What does this mean?
By the way the upstream is http://trilinos.sandia.gov/.


@ deji:
I found that some files like:
packages/zoltan/src/postprocessing/ordering/order_eval.c 
(I could not find this file in 8.0.7 tarball) are licensed
under CeCILL-C. While this license does not conflict with LGPL,
this surely conflicts with GPL, so this may be against what
you want. Would you check how these codes are used?
