  <longdescription>
    <p>
      The Gentoo Scientific Project handles math and science related activities in Gentoo.
      This includes maintaining packages that belong to various math
      and science related herds, fortran compilers, documentations and communications.
    </p>
  </longdescription>

  <goals>
    <p>
      The goals of Scientific Gentoo are to provide a simple but optimal
      installation and configuration of a wide variety of math and
      science applications. Scientific computing is an area where custom optimization
      provides great benefit. We also provide tools to easily switch configurations, and relevant
      documentations. We give special attention to ways to test the
      packages, through regression suites, and benchmarks.
    </p>

<p>
  New packages and more complex version bumps are held in
  an <uri link="http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/science/">Overlay</uri>. They
  help both the science and hp-cluster team and the wiki contains some
  temporary information.

    <summary>CAD Programs</summary>
    <details>
      Computer Aided Design open source programs are getting more popular
      and yet to have decent support in Gentoo. We need to put an end
      on this.
    </details>
    <requirements>
      Knowledge of a few CAD programs and good ebuild skills.
