## Revision as of 16:09, 29 November 2012

## sagemath-5.4 Fedora review request

The "package SAGE itself" goal has been reached!

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=877651

It is now possible to build sagemath in rawhide, with minor efforts in f18, and there is a private x86_64 f17 repository at:

http://pcpa.fedorapeople.org/sagemath/f17/

You need this in /etc/yum.repos.d

http://pcpa.fedorapeople.org/sagemath/sagemath-f17.repo

(Note that this backports a very large amount of rawhide packages and will not be maintained once f18 is released)

## Dependencies (for which there is a separate upstream)

### Missing required components

(If you are working on packaging a component or have filed a review request bug, please note it or link to something here.)

Fedora package | Upstream | Review request / status |
---|---|---|

cliquer | cliquer | #825494 Missing in f18 |

### Packages that need changes to work with sagemath

Fedora package | Upstream | Request for Enhancement / status |
---|---|---|

python-matplotlib | matplotlib | #837156 Requires |

numpy | scipy | #868585 Requires |

### Completed (reviewed and built) required components

## Packages for which SAGE is upstream

Latest versions found in http://www.sagemath.org/packages/standard/ that may be worth packaging as separate SRPMS or different subpackages:

sage | could be named python-sagemath for %{python_sitearch}/sage contents but may not be fully functional without a few "system overrides" in $SAGE_ROOT/site-packages |

sage_scripts | the main sagemath package requiring all python modules |

rubiks | there are 3 solvers, but only 2 with functional upstream link, therefore should use sagemath spkg |

doc | can be made optional in a sagemath-doc package for users that would prefer to access documentation from elsewhere or are good enough with the python docstrings |

extcode | interfaces to other systems or customizations, could/should be made an optional, but a very small package |

notebook | %{python_sitearch}/sagenb contents, needs some testing, but may be useful if one wants only the command line interface |

elliptic_curves, conway_polynomials, graphs, polytopes_db | ZoDB databases used internally by SAGE |

flintqs | upstream because original upstream deprecated it |

## Cross-distribution efforts

- Debian: Tim Abbott's list of SAGE-related Debian packages. Some of these Debian packages may include some patches for the dependencies that may be required for SAGE that have not yet been pushed upstream (older unmaintained wiki page http://wiki.sagemath.org/devel/DebianSage)
- PcLinuxOS: http://www.mypclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?topic=1509.msg13532#msg13532
- Mandriva: http://svn.mandriva.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/packages/cooker/sagemath/

## Historical discussion

On fedora-devel KevinKofler points out that:

One problem will be that they're bundling many third-party components which should be packaged separately:http://sage.math.washington.edu/sage/doc/html/inst/intro.html

So the first step is to track down which of these dependencies are in Fedora already, whether they need any patches to work with SAGE, whether they are build-time (BuildRequires) dependencies, run-time (Requires) dependencies or both, whether they're required or optional and package those which are not in Fedora yet.

He suggests the following order:

- package required build-time dependencies
- package required run-time dependencies
- package as many optional build-time dependencies as possible
- package SAGE itself
- package optional run-time dependencies (and decide on a case by case basis whether it makes sense to add them as actual Requires: dependencies to the package or not)

*Required* components that SAGE ships with: http://sagemath.org/packages/standard/

*Optional* components that SAGE ships with: http://sagemath.org/packages/optional/

(a manual list with descriptions which may vary somewhat with respect to the above is at http://sagemath.org/links-components.html) (See also: http://wiki.sagemath.org/days6/sprint/debian)
