I have had a thought regarding packages and adding software, while (correct
me if I am wrong) the idea of this spin is to have a distribution that is a
good base point for many different types of scientist, it is not possible to
include all the software that people want or all the specialist software
that people would use in specific fields.
So I was wondering if it would be possible to add some extra categories to
the package manager (GUI) to allow people to find, or install en-masse the
software they might need. My thoughts were we could have a large Sci/Tech
spin category with sub categories such as Astronomy, Physics, Biology
(etc...) with the ability to browse the packages in those lists or install
all of them (or recommended subsets).
