I did a some updates to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/SciTech/SAGE
to make it easier to track what is required to replicate my current
sagemath-5.2.beta0-1.fc18 package in rawhide.
There isn't much extra required, thanks to all the previous work already
done in Fedora. See updated [Missing required components] and new
[Packages that need changes to work with sagemath] section in the wiki page.
After some delay due to several issues, like getting some packages updated
or upstream accepting patches, etc, I did work again on sagemath for fedora.
Also now running rawhide not fc16.

Sample screenshot from the xterm starting the sagemath notebook:
In the last screenshot it was running "sage -testall" but I did not
bother to wait it timeout when running:
sage -t -force_lib "devel/sage/sage/structure/parent_old.pyx"
because it did dead lock in a select syscall, so I just ^C'ed and tested the
notebook. There is plenty of debugging to do to get it usable, but screenshots
should give a good idea of the current state :-)
BTW, the fedora windowmaker package makes me sad :-) I will try to come
with some patches at some point, and also hope to get xedit reviewed and
packaged, besides probably I am the only user of it :-)
PS: In the notebook screenshot, I need to add a maxima patch, and
will require a patch in maxima if one chooses to use clisp as maxima
backend; patch should be close to
