Re: [eigen] External contributions

Thanks for your idea. I too have been thinking about that.

I think that my favorite option is to have a eigen2/unsupported
directory inside which things are organized in the same way as in
eigen2/ itself. So it would look like this:


Then we would install the headers also with the unsupported/ prefix,
but still in the same eigen2/ directory, so it would look like this:


The user would either #include as follows,


or (non default behavior) he could add
/usr/include/eigen2/unsupported/ also to his include path so he could
seamlessly do

Sure. It's just a matter of:
1) adding the unsupported/ paths to doc/, and backport to
Mainpage.dox (for
2) copy the CMakeLists.txt files under doc/ to unsupported/doc/. They
are the code responsible for building the snippets and recording their

That, or any other visual hint, good idea.

We have yet to write some clear criteria but I can already say that
what you mention here sounds very good.
