Hello OpenSUSE Science,
DAKOTA is a package developed at Sandia national labs, and used to orchestrate numerical simulations for optimization and uncertainty quantification. I've been using it for a while, always needing to build it from source, and recently learned that I could actually build it on OBS. Now that it's up there, I thought I would notify you all and propose including it in the OpenSUSE:Science project.
I have a couple questions:
1. Is the Science project accepting new packages?
2. Currently it builds using a simple patch (known by the developers) and ignoring all rpmlint warnings/errors. I'm assuming included packages shouldn't just ignore all errors. What's the policy for dealing with that?
3. I included Python bindings and MPI by default. Does the Science project require separate packages (e.g for with/without MPI)?
