a distribution for scientific software

lmonade is a light-weight meta distribution of scientific software, based on Gentoo prefix, that can be installed without administrative rights on Unix based operating systems. It creates a uniform environment for development to simplify code sharing and distribution especially when complex dependencies are involved. This platform enables researchers to build on existing tools without fear of losing users to baffling installation instructions.

This talk will explain the motivation, design criteria and architecture of lmonade with a summary of future plans.
