+1 from me! This will make it much easier to track things down. Depending on the "definition" of visualisation and hence sci-vis this category could also include sci-chemistry/pymol and possibly sci-chemistry/molden since both visualize molecules. Particularly pymol doesn't seem to really fit in sci-chemistry since it is geared toward biomolecules and could as well be in sci-biology. The same will hold for vmd once I am done with the ebuild. cheers, Markus - -- Markus Dittrich (markusle) Gentoo Linux Developer Scientific applications -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFDijeJxlRwCwb7k40RAkinAJ9z48iCuDBciJncI1VbMb3UL0oMQwCfSaKW aN/ZY6v2G0tT8hfJ/L8zP6w= =AQ4m -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-science@g.o mailing list
