Hello there! I am Amit Saha. ([1]). I shall summarize my efforts in the Fedora community on this page.


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

Update #1: June, 24 - 2011

I finally started acting on this idea of mine with an email to the rel-eng list [[2]].

After discussions on the mailing list with Bill Nottingham, I proposed a patch to the comps-f16-xml.in file [[3]].

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.
