This is to help document the process to get SAGE (http://sagemath.org/), the open-source computer algebra/mathematics framework into Fedora.

Fedora and other community efforts

People interested helping in packaging/reviewing:

Cross-distribution efforts:

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:

  1. package required build-time dependencies
  2. package required run-time dependencies
  3. package as many optional build-time dependencies as possible
  4. package SAGE itself
  5. 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)

Dependencies (for which there is a separate upstream)

Packages for which SAGE is upstream

Latest versions found in http://www.sagemath.org/packages/standard/

  • sage
  • sage_scripts
  • rubiks
  • doc
  • examples
  • extcode
  • elliptic_curves, conway_polynomials, graphs, polytopes_db (ZoDB databases used internally by SAGE)
  • flintqs (upstream because original upstream deprecated it)

Some of those may or may not be worth packaging as separate SRPMs.
