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packages which are interested in my SC corner are either outdated or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openmpi outdated (1.2.8)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.
I'm biologist, so I'm also highly interested in this question, although
I'm not developer (I help with translations and bug reporting). Just to
remind, there are two important mailing lists for those topics:
Thanks for the pointers. I subscribed to them as well and will forward
the message to those. I recognized a very low traffic on the Education
ml, is that project still active? And what about the science project?
There also has been some
extensive discussion on openFATE, see for example
Oh, great, I was thinking about opening such a feature request, thanks
for pointing that out, I will add a list of missing interesting software
I personally use R (incl. Rkward and so on), a lot of
in Java (hehe, is there real need to package it?;-)
and easy C binaries.
Also software like KBibTeX and so on. Some software is in repos like
Science, Education, devel:/languages:/R:/ (not so much there at all), ...
So I'm interested in such activity, but I'm not sure how much I can
Well, that it would be one purpose of a BoF :) Are you planning to
attend the conference?
