Documentation

Ideas/Proposals

  • SAGE packaging discussion
  • MPI work:
  • Use environment-modules to improve the "MPI alternatives" situation -- please see the proposal at the bottom of EdHill
  • Make a Fedora-science spin.

Packages

Available Packages

Packages awaiting review

Add the FE-SCITECH blocker bug to any Science/Technology related review in Bugzilla. (Remember to remove it once the review is passed.)

The tracker is in Bugzilla.

List of applications we will NOT package

  • Non-commercial clauses in applications licenses render them invalid for inclusion into Fedora Package Collection. Such apps are not Free and open source software and violates Clause 6 of the OSI definition. See an example of such clause:

for profit purposes provided that this copyright and statement are included in
all such copies.  Other copyrights may also apply.
Name Description Why it won't be packaged
EMC2 Mesh generation utility Non-Free license (verified by fedora-legal)
VMD Molecular Visualization and Analysis Package Non-Free license
fasta2 and fasta3 The FASTA programs find regions of local or global (new) similarity between Protein or DNA sequences License contains non-commercial clause
