= Debian Science =
== Goals ==
 * Provide to researchers and scientists better experience when using Debian.
 * Classify, package and distribute free software useful to science and research.
 * Support any quality efforts around free scientific software.
 * Maintaining the [:DebianScience/CDD:Debian Science CDD]
== How to use it? ==
 * You can use Debian Science perfectly as you are using Debian because it is a completely internal project and is nothing else than Debian itself. We just felt a need to found a team that works as a strike force for scientific software inside Debian.
 * There have been efforts to create a CDD (Custom Debian Distribution) for Debian/Science, but at the moment no installer is available. Please see the section: ["DebianScience/CDD"]
 * A proposal to create a custom repository for science-related unofficial packages has been made; See DebianScience/UnofficialRepository

The aim of the [http://cdd.alioth.debian.org/science/tasks/index.html Debian Science metapackages] is to provide a useful set of packages for someone working in a particular scientific field.
