Fedora scientific packaging

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Some time ago I started working on packaging Salome, the platform for numerical simulation. As always, time is a limited resource, and things kinda stalled after hitting a few issues here and there, despite most of the work being done. Now, with Jiri Kastner joining the effort, we decided that it would be nice to attempt to make the effort of packaging scientific packages for Fedora in general more public, in particular considering the scientific-spin effort [1]. Many of the larger scientific packages tend to be very complex and their build systems occasionally somewhat fragile... So getting more interested people involved would likely increase the chances of the efforts succeeding.

That said, there is now a github repo which contains the work-in-progress stuff for packaging Salome (and some initial OpenFOAM work) here [2]. People interested in joining these efforts or sharing initial work on other scientific packages are very welcome to join the github project.
