== Fedora Scientific Spin ==
 
 
 
I am a long-term Linux user and have been into full-time scientific research for the past 3 years now. Everytime I have to do a fresh-install of Linux (not so frequently, ofcourse), I have to download a bunch of tools which I use regularly. For example, gnuplot, xfig, LaTex compilers, numpy, etc.
 
 
 
How cool would it be to have a Linux distro which already had these installed? Say hello to Fedora-Scientific

I finally started acting on this idea of mine with an email to the rel-eng list [[http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/rel-eng/2011-May/012251.html]].
 
 
 
After discussions on the mailing list with Bill Nottingham, I proposed a patch to the comps-f16-xml.in file [[http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=comps.git;a=commitdiff;h=ebfe294e32736a3e3386ee9c55ffb7386821b902]].
 
 
 
I already have the kickstart file ready for this one, which I shall post to the mailing list soon, once I have tested my ISO. It currently stands at 1.1 G.
