You read my mind! I have been thinking of doing this since the day I saw 
the engineering and scientific group. That said, it is out of the scope 
for the Fedora Scientific Spin project. But, it is very much in the 
scope of the SciTech SIG.

A good starting point would perhaps be to email the release engineering 
list [1] and state your intention citing the comps files. [2]

Please let me know if you have any queries regarding this.
