There is a related area that would be of interest to me. It can be put under
benchmarks as well. So far, you have been looking into performance, I
about conformance and possibly precision benchmarking.
Does the library behave as it should. What is the accuracy of the result, do
some version of the libraries give more precise results than another
This is particularly important to me because of the discussion we
where it is clear to me that it is due to something that gives a different
result in cblas from ATLAS-3.9 and it would be good to test this formally.
