I'd like to make science libraries and softwares more visible in Mageia.

Mageia, like other distro, contains a big amount of packages for 
scientists (more than ScientificLinux in fact :) ).
But no distro are doing ads about that.
Looking around french labs, I noted the distro used and the reasons :
- ScientificLinux -> because of the name (which is a joke for me)
- Debian -> for stability
- Fedora -> for security
- Mandriva -> because it's French and/or there are contributors in lab's 
sysadmin team
I'm not saying Mageia has more things than Fedora, Debian and Mdv. I 
just want to show to scientific community, that they can also use Mageia :)

The first step was for me to list all that we have and all that we miss. 
It has been done here :

I'd think the second step would be to make a groupe of wiki/web pages 
(by type or by application domain ?).
What do you think about that ?
Do some of you want to help or have any idea ?
