Latest commit 98740a3 Jan 4, 2018 @jwpeterson jwpeterson Remove special distribution permission README.
Ben initially obtained this permission back in 2003:

  commit 92ef058
  Author: Benjamin Kirk <>
  Date:   Tue Jan 21 17:36:14 2003 +0000

      added METIS and TECPLOT support in the contrib directory after getting permission to distribute them.

but special permission should no longer be required for Metis >=
5.0.3, since those versions are licensed under Apache 2.0.
