Yes, that was mainly what I was thinking, I am aware that maybe it's not
specific to the Scientific Spin, as I think you mentioned before however I
think it will add some value to it. I was also thinking if it would be nice
to either upgrade the existing software Centre UI or make something special
for the scientific spin to set up packages specific to the use case of

That's an interesting list of software but some of it is a bit out of date.
I wonder how much of it is in the Fedora package repositories, and if more
of it could be included.
Are you suggesting that you upgrade the ESO SciSoft archives to bring them
up to date for F17? If so that is interesting especially if a lot of it is
/ could be included in the Fedora repos then it could be a easy add on for
the package catogires as mentioned above w.r.t having install options that
allow for specific (while being of general interest) use cases.

For astronomy software we generally install the rpms from the ESO Scisoft set on top of a standard fedora install.
This time I plan to install them on top of the F16 Scientfic spin. Maybe relevant to update the list of those rpms to latest
versions of Fedora for the next Spin.
The files are linked to on http://www.eso.org/sci/software/scisoft/ which describes the scisoft package.

I was wondering what the status on having a option of a Gnome 3 based spin
in F17 was?
I know we discussed it briefly close to the release of F16.
Also I was thinking about the package customisation again, I shall start
looking through what was discussed about making a start on some decent
package categories for the scientific spin.
