I find your comment extremely interesting, since I was specifically
asked to look how to evaluate G-functions in the complex field. Do you
think that the extension is naive because of the "scaling relation"?
Or there is something else behind your comment?
I see that there is really a lot of work to do but I'm willing to
contribute to this project and improve the status of GiNaC with this
regard. I'm really interested, even at the personal level. In fact
I've searched for years for an interesting open source project to
start contributing to.
However I won't be free to focus on this matter at least until the
21st of October, due to some major university duties. In the meanwhile
I will try to get acquainted with the existing GiNaC code.
