Re: Is anyone packaging sage?

Still, a monolithic solution like this is not going to fly, every single of 
these separate projects needs to be packaged separately, usually directly from 
upstream, not from the bundled often outdated version in SAGE. Unfortunately, 
SAGE tries to be yet another program which tries to be a distro, this sucks. 
Out of spkg/standard/*.spkg, as a first guess, only 
spkg/standard/*- makes sense to package as part of SAGE, that would 
be doc, examples, extcode, sage and sage_scripts. And these should be 5 
separate packages or subpackages (e.g. sagemath, sagemath-doc, 
sagemath-examples, sagemath-extcode, sagemath-scripts).

Moreover, at least in your build.log, it appears also to still build stuff like 
ATLAS and gnutls which are already in Fedora (and the gnutls build failed).
