    initial v2  
    1 I apologize in advance that my very first Sage trac ticket is a huge wishlist item.

    3 I would be interested in a Sage package for CGAL, the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library. http://www.cgal.org/index.html
     1This ticket adds a preliminary Sage package for CGAL, the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library. http://www.cgal.org/index.html

    53It is a huge package. My main interest, right now, comes from a need for fast data structures for polyhedral complexes in low dimension / piecewise linear functions in several variables.

    7 By a web search, I found that in 2009, there was intermittent interest in making such a Sage package. [https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sage-devel/35g7UicEKvo]
     5Installation goes through; I have not tested anything.

    814One of the concerns at the time apparently was CGAL's licensing. However, CGAL has changed its licensing terms since then; it now appears to be released under some combination of GPL and LGPL, version 3 or later.
