The NeuroFedora SIG's goal is to make Fedora the best platform for neuroscience and neuroimaging research.
The self contained change request proposed by this SIG are detailed here
When submitting a new neuro-related package for review, please add "Blocks: fedora-neuro" to your review-request.
When your package approved in PkgDB, you should make sure to add "group::neuro-sig" with commit/watchbugzilla/watchcommits ACLs.
Packages waiting for your review
You can find them on the RHBZ #fedora-neuro.
We would be glad, if you would take one or a few. :)
You can't find the existing neurofedora-related packages on the PkgDB yet but we are working on it.
There is a good amount of overlap with other SIGs and Spins and some categories of NeuroFedora can be seen as BigData, Fedora-Medical, ML, Octave and SciTech in general. The classification of packages that [neuro.debian.net|NeuroDebian] uses is as follows:
*Packages for Distributed Computing *Packages for Electrophysiology *Packages for Magnetic Reasonance Imaging *Packages for Modeling of neural systems *Packages for Neuroscience Datasets *Packages for Neuroscience Education *Packages for Psychophysics
What are we going to do?
We are first planning to try and match as many of the packages from the debian-based neurodebian project as possible excluding the debian-specific packaging related tools and any others for which licensing issues are a problem. The second phase would be to publish a paper outlining the work here again following the neurodebian project paper to give the project some exposure in the research community. A parallel track to these is to continue to publish research using the tools available in NeuroFedora.
There is no formal process for participating; joining the mailing list, hanging out on IRC, or participating in meetings are all great ways to get involved.
A little self-introduction on the mailing list would be nice, too. And, if you want to, add yourself to our members-section above.
We hang out on irc.freenode.net at.
We shall have them, and see how it goes.
more to come soon.
