We give an implementation of the Goemans-Williamson clustering procedure which is at the core of several approximation algorithms including those for Generalized Steiner Trees, Prize Collecting Travelling Salesman, 2-Edge Connected Subgraph etc. On a graph with n nodes and m edges, our implementation gives $O (k(n + m) log^2 n)$ time approximation algorithms for all these problems at the expense of a 1 slight additive degradation of $1/n^k$ in the approximation factor, for any constant k.
