Title: Include Sage open-source mathematics software

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed

Requested by: Todd R (theblackcat)

Sage is a python-based GPL advanced mathematics software similar to the
closed-source mathematica and the open-source maxima.  It seems pretty
powerful, supporting many advanced mathematics operations, plotting, and other
higher-level mathematics tasks.  It provides a nice web interface.  Further,
the new Cantor advanced mathematics software that will be included with KDE 4.4
can act as a front-end for sage (as well as maxima and R for now).  However,
there is no Sage package for openSUSE. 

Considering an official KDE program now uses it I think it is a good idea to
provide a package. Since Cantor is now in the main KDE education software group
I think Sage should probably be in the main release for openSUSE 11.3.  In the
meantime there should probably be a package in KDE4 Unstable now and one in KDE
4 factory when it switches to KDE 4.4 beta 1, and probably another in the
science and/or education buildservice repository.
