Thanks Justin for the detailed check,

We understand that those buildtool files can be included, and have indeed
exclude them from RAT check (see rat-excludes)

Thanks for pointing these out, they are entirely valid. From the last
release, we have restructured the codebase but forgotten to update the
LICENSE file, which result in the invalid paths.

Files in include/mshadows/* are bundled from mshadow project ( and they carry Apache v2.0 license (

Other issues  are due to our oversight, we apologize and will rectify them.

Would also be nice to have compile instructions. On OS X configure fails

Please refer to the file for the build instruction. There's the
solution to the error you encountered (due to the compiler not be able to
find OpenBLAS library) in the FAQ section in the file.
