Re: Installing the whole set of scientific packages
I would like to suggest a meta-package
which would install tex. It could depend on tetex or texlive.
It could also install some other tools that are useful in this context
like pybliographer or the suggested debian-science-bibliography metapackage
Everyone has their own taste when it comes to tex editors but it
might be useful for such a package to suggest utilities like
kile, texmacs, texmaker, auctex, vim-latex, lyx, latex-xft-fonts etc.

I disagree. While Tex is indeed very useful, the choice of tools should
clearly be left to the user. At most a recommendation.

Again, only if truly necessary. If someone wants math, they can select it
