General Fedora Packages WishList

As a current contributor, if you know of projects that would be appropriate in Fedora package collection but are unable to maintain yourself just drop them with a line here. This list can be used to give other contributors ideas on what to package next. Please be aware however that the number of high quality, well maintained packages that Fedora repository provides scales with the number of active contributors. It is just as important to encourage new contributors as it is to desire new packages. If you are not yet a contributor to the Fedora packaging process, please look over this list and see if there are any projects you would be willing to maintain for the Fedora community.

If are interested in contributing to Fedora package collection, take a look at PackageMaintainers

Healthcare WishList

Formal Methods WishList

The paper "High Assurance (for Security or Safety) and Free-Libre / Open Source Software (FLOSS)... with Lots on Formal Methods" by David A. Wheeler lists lots of tools that can help develop "high assurance" software, particularly "formal methods" tools. A related site, Open Proofs, maintains a list of promising FLOSS formal methods tools and their packaging status. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Some of these tools include:

Additional CAS tools, like Axiom, Yacas, and SAGE would be helpful too.

A number have already been done, including Coq, Why / Caduceus / Krakatoa, tex-zfuzz, and minisat2.

See the Wheeler paper (above) and the Open Proofs site for project URLs, license info, what they do, etc.
