Fedora only has GAP itself, the table-of-marks package, and xgap so
far. I've got a few more baking here:
I will build the ones from there. Should resolve gapdoc and sonata
missing gap modules required by sagemath.
but more and more GAP packages have newer versions that only work
GAP 4.5. Even though that version is still in beta, I'm starting to
think about building it for Rawhide, so we can move ahead on some of
the other GAP packages.
In Mandriva I packaged gap packages from the
tarball and did not update it anymore...
You may consider packaging contents from the latest packages tarball, e.g.
But should be better to follow the model you are using, and at least
at first, package only what sagemath "absolutely" needs, that should
be these packages (the missing ones that cause sage to fail to start):
these should also be well maintained packages, and should all be
in the "approved" list of gap packages.
