Default Bug#644096: ITP: vistrails -- Scientific visualisation workflow tool

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Alastair McKinstry <mckinstry@debian.org>

* Package name : vistrails
Version : 2.0.alpha
Upstream Author : U. of Utah <contact@vistrails.org>
* URL : http://www.vistrails.org
* License : BSD
Programming Lang: python
Description : Scientific visualisation workflow tool

VisTrails is an open-source scientific workflow and provenance management
system developed at the University of Utah that provides support for
data exploration and visualization. Whereas workflows have been traditionally
used to automate repetitive tasks, for applications that are exploratory
in nature, such as simulations, data analysis and visualization, very little
is repeated---change is the norm. As an engineer or scientist generates and
evaluates hypotheses about data under study, a series of different, albeit
related, workflows are created while a workflow is adjusted in an interactive
process. VisTrails was designed to manage these rapidly-evolving workflows.

Javier, thank you for your input. It seems that your solution should=20
work. The file /etc/network/interfaces should only be modified early=20
enough. I will give it a try!

Thank you again!
