Debian Science

News

  • The latest draft of "Bits from debian-science" is available: ["DebianScience/News/Draft"]

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

Resources

metapackages

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.
