Default Scilab on Fedora and CeCILL license

Hi all,
Some time ago (FC6, F7?) SciLab[1] was in the Fedora repos but it looks out now.
Scilab is an amazing scientific software and I'm interested in packaging it but first I want to know if is someone working on it and if the CeCILL license[2] is Fedora compatible.

[2] - http://www.cecill.info/index.en.html

Regards

The CeCILL license is listed as being acceptable on
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing.

I do not believe that scilab has ever been in Fedora as its license
has only recently become acceptable.

Hi and welcome. Your enthusiasm is appreciated.

Yes, CeCILL license is acceptable in Fedora.

As for packagin scilab, I suggest you join forces with Nicolas Chauvet
(kwizart) and D Haley, who are working on packaging scilab and its
dependencies. It's going to be an uphill road, as some of the subdependecies
are turning out to be non-free. See bug 464781[1] for some current work
on this.

Regards,
R.

I have a package quite ready but it miss some dependencies.
At least some of them haven't been submitted for review until recently.
matio: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466737

jrosetta: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=468797

jogl: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=439630
The review will also concern gluegen and cpptasks

flexdock: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=464781
I was unable to package this one without Jimi which is nonfree and
needs to be riped out.
This one is really non-trivial if doable.

There is probably a problem with some java dependencies that cannot be
compiled without others nonfree dependencies.
The nonfree choice have to be completely ripped out along with the
included "tweaked/prebuilt" jar files, so even if that's not needed
for scilab properly, we may either have nonfree dependencies, or
packages that fails to build from sources.
If such problem appears we could miss the scilab java gui.

If someone want to help, there are probably specs around that need to
be raised to the fedora guidelines:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Java

Missing Fedora dependencies:
(search also in http://wiki.scilab.org/Dependencies_of_Scilab_5.X )
- jhall also known as javahelp2 at jpackage.org is nonfree, unless
there is a replacement choice that I'm not aware, this can lead to a
problem.
- SKINL: Skin Look and Feel . it searches for a skinlf.jar
- jeuclid
- saxon
- Sablotron
- Giws
Any can pick one of theses, but please warn if you have something
close to be ready.

Nicolas (kwizart)
