i've tried this with sage-4.7.2. i remember the following:
- Bernhard sent me a ratpoints-2.1.3 draft
- extended/switched mpfr, mpfi, givaro, lcalc (more?) to support mpir (locally)
- moved flint package to 1.5.2 (locally)
- moved givaro to 3.6.0 (not pushed yet)
- packaged mpir (debian-science git)
- packaged sagenb, sage-scripts (locally)
- polybori 0.8.0 (pushed to debian-science git, working but incomplete)
- singular is half way done (debian-science git)
- liblcalc-dev 0.0.20090723-1 (draft, locally)
Please help on any of these :D
also i've patched the sage setup.py, module_list.py to "work" on debian,
resulting in libcsage and python-sage packages. i've just moved to 5.0,
doesn't compile (missing m4rie.h). i'm aiming at a proof-of-concept, for
that matter, m4rie might be the next thing i'll do...
