# Progress report for CNRS
Reporting period from Sept. 2015 to February 2017
## Financial and administrative setup
- Everything on rails: money arrived, first expenses done,
we were even allowed to use some of the overhead.
- Going back and forth between laboratory administration and
CNRS is a bit of a nightmare. But with patience, things
- **Vincent Klein** from march 1st 2017
- Former research engineer at Bordeaux
- Will work on packaging, Sage architecture and combinatorics
- **Sébastien Labbé** was recruited as a CNRS Chargé de Recherche
and will become part of the ODK team in Bordeaux
- T2.5 Sage school during DIMACOS school in Alger (Nov 2015)
- T2.3 [PARI/GP days in Grenoble (Jan 2016)](http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/Events/PARI2016/)
- T2.5 [Sage day in Monastir (Mar 2016)](http://www.edsf.fss.rnu.tn/Colloque1/colloque3.html)
- T2.5 [Sage days 73 in Oaxaca (May 2016)](http://wiki.sagemath.org/days73)

- PARI ateliers: [2016 in Grenoble](http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/Events/PARI2016/), [2017 in Lyon](http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/Events/PARI2017/)
- [PARI/GP releases](http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/timeline.html).
The last stable release 2.9.1 (Dec 1 2016) includes the achievement of [D5.10 generic parallelisation engine for PARI](https://github.com/OpenDreamKit/OpenDreamKit/issues/108)
- Progress on [cypari2](https://github.com/defeo/cypari2): now installs as a Python library with both Python2 and Python3
## Main upcoming tasks and deliverables
- [T5.6: HPC infrastructure for combinatorics](https://github.com/OpenDreamKit/OpenDreamKit/issues/104)
We already have a prototype for the C library. And two functions got already
included in PARI/GP (iteration over permutations and subsets).
