No I was thinking more about software like polymake
(http://www.math.tu-berlin.de/polymake) nauty
(http://cs.anu.edu.au/~bdm/nauty/) (which is not DFSG free, but for
sake illustrating the type of software) or latte

The question I was trying ask is how broad the pkg-scicomp groups sees
its mandate.
