Subject: [gentoo-dev] RFC: New category - sci-visualization
Date: Sat, 14 Jan 2006 15:04:22
1 I propose creating a new category, sci-visualization, to house scientific
2 visualization applications. There are at least 17 applications I have
3 identified which are already in the tree that could be moved. Many of them
4 are in media-gfx with photo applications etc. They are all taken care of by
5 the scientific application herd.
7 The category is kept intentionally broad to include applications such as
8 grace, qtiplot and gnuplot which visualise 2/3D data, gwyddion and gxsm which
9 visualise SPM data. There are some data mining applications (getting data
10 points from published graphs) that would fit in here quite nicely too. This
11 has already been discussed on the gentoo-science list and I put it to the
12 wider Gentoo community before adding the new category and moving any ebuilds.
14 Thanks,
16 Marcus
