I'm the lead developer on Axiom. Axiom was originally developed over
a 23 year period at IBM Research (I was one of the original authors).
It was eventually sold to NAG. Axiom used to be sold commercially
as a competitor to Mathematica and Maple. In 2000 it was withdrawn
from the market and released as open source. See

I'm also the lead developer on Doyen. Doyen is a scientific
computing platform based on LiveCDs (similar to Knoppix). See
Doyen is intended as a vehicle to make scientific software
available at computational science conferences.

We attempt to work cooperatively to bring together the best
available talent and tools. I signed up for the developer
mailing list so I can understand what the current concerns
are for Scientific Linux and to connect with developers who
have an interest in working together.
