I was at the meeting in LogroƱo and my impression was that we had to live with these different formalisations. There was no way to unify them and the best one could hope to transfer certain results from one formalisation to another using local types in some incredibly complicated way.

If there really is a common basis for formalising linear algebra than I would be thrilled to see it, and I'm sure we could figure out a way to implement this.

Last year in Logrono, there was the proposal to put all linear algebra on the common foundation of a locale for modules, but apparently nobody has found the time and motivation to push this much further.
