They include MUMPS, Scotch, and Metis.
I do plan to maintain these, since for the coming 4 years I’ll definitely be working with Kwant and probably on my Mac.
It’s definitely useful to use conda, installing a complete Python environment plus kwant is now done in ~2 minutes.
I’ll give compiling for Windows a try some day, however probably I won’t make time for this in the coming weeks.

Hi Bas, Thanks for packaging Kwant for conda! Do these packages include MUMPS? Do you think you could continue to maintain these packages for a while? If yes, and if no grave problems show up after a few days or so, you would be very welcome to update http://kwant-project.org/install. (You can either clone the Kwant website repository or we can give you directly write access to it.) I think conda will be especially interesting for people using OS X and Windows. It would be really nice if we could provide some easier way to install Kwant on Windows. Do you know how much work that would be? Christoph
