At the moment, at least from a NeuroFedora perspective, the Scientific
spin/image isn't a requirement. It's quite general purpose, so we have
our own spin/lab with specialised software that also includes a bunch of
the Scientific packages to help with analysis.
Not clear if want to consolidate
with Robotics to have a Makers, Science and Engineering spin. The SIG page already has a
large number of packages , but not sure all are used enough to warrant inclusion. In
principle I can take this up as am already using KDE, but am behind on my commitments to
Fedora project so would not be able to make much contributions until Fedora 33. It might
be worth reaching out to maker labs/hacker spaces and researchers.
