SAGE looks very cool and is a potential Mathematica-killer (which
would be a very good thing as Mathematica is one of the most
proprietary apps around and has some of the most expensive license
fees and some of the most draconian per-process licensing terms).

So I'd be interested in helping out too.  We don't have a Mathematics
SIG per se, but there is a SciTech sig:


which is pretty quiet enough as it is, more than 50% of the packages
discussed there are mathematical anyway, so I don't see reason to
create a new separate Mathematics SIG.  I've added a link to SAGE on
that page.  Maybe somebody might like to transfer some of the
discussion here to a subpage of SciTech.
