The concept of mutual compatibiliy is introduced. It has arisen from the cooperation of the developers of the RASP and SLICOT libraries. With this concept it becomes feasible to coordinate the development of several libraries leading to a reduction of software implementation and testing efforts without giving up the identity of the separate libraries. A first development along the lines of the mutual compatibility concept is the recently developed model reduction library RASP-MODRED.
