Improve packaging of scientific software

Many scientific software in Gentoo needs more care, e.g. you can:

  • package recent versions of Pythia, HepMC, and other HEP software;
  • package machine learning toolkits: tensorflow, keras, and caffe for starting (possibly with an option of picking up Intel patches for high performance);
  • package recent versions of free software Intel tools like: daal and others.


Contacts Required Skills
  • Bash
  • Python (dealing with ecosystem should be enough)
  • Experience with different build systems
  • Git
