  Yes please do submit a patch. It would be best to submit a git diff against the latest master branch of GSL. I'll take a look when I can find the time. Thanks for your efforts!

Hello GSL developers,

over the past months, we (ROOT developers from CERN) created a portable 
implementation of RANLUX++, which was first proposed by Alexei Sibidanov in 
2017 and uses an LCG equivalent to achieve a much higher luxury level than the 
original Ranlux and provides some more advantages (better initialization and 
fast skipping). Results from this portable implementation are available in and already shipping with the latest release 
of ROOT.

For wider distribution and ease of use, we would like to also contribute this 
generator to GSL and have already written the necessary plumbing code to 
integrate with the GSL interfaces. It is currently available at my GitHub:

Could you let us know what the next steps would be? Shall we submit a patch for 
integration into GSL or do we have to be added to the list of 
"Extensions/Applications" first?

Kind regards
