Since I originally package hmatrix, I guess this may be addressed to me.
To be honest, I haven't used this package much recently and, given its
rather low popcon, I somehow believe this is superfluous in Debian (it
probably contributes to the maintenance burden of DHG) and was thus more
inclined to consider it for removal.

Anyways, a quick look reveals that, of these extra hmatrix packages,
only hmatrix-gsl is listed in LTS or stackage. What's should be done in
this respect?
