Hello again Lucas,
is there any progress on this issue?

Have you managed to get in touch with François Pellegrini?
Have you succeeded in explaining the issue to him and in persuading him
that SCOTCH should be re-licensed (or dual-licensed) under
GPLv2-or-later-compatible terms?

I really hope this long-standing issue may be solved for the best very

Please let me know.
Thanks for your time and helpfulness!

 There's not a second to spare! To the laboratory!
