I just want to quickly check whether there is a general interest for a
get together at the oSC of people working with scientific computing (SC)
software and openSUSE.
A motivation behind this is to discuss how to improve opensuse as
platform for scientific computing. I am in general very satisfied with
my shortterm experience of openSUSE, including tumbleweed, but I after
my recent switch to this distribution I discovered that quite some
packages which are interested in my SC corner are either outdated or
not available in the *official* repos.
Some of these are:
openmpi outdated (1.2.8)
mayavi and enthought related packages (none)
petsc,trilinos, armadillo (none)
netgen, tetgen, triangle (none)
cgal, gts (none)
scientific python (none)
Some of these are spread over different projects like Science and
Education, which results in a significant overlap of packages with
different version numbers, possible incompatibilities etc.
So an idea might be to talk about how to improve the situation, software
which might be interesting to package (maybe even trying to start a
unifying SC project) or about what else comes into your mind!
As I said that are some first thoughts and I am looking forward to
hearing any comment, suggestion etc.
