being a physicist myself I am very interested :)

Yes, surely not as many as for the latest alsa or mplayer rpms, but I
hope there are still some physicists and mathematicians around :)
There are very well supported Linux derivatives of Red Hat products
(RHL and RHEL) at CERN and Fermilabs (called, who would have guessed:
CERN Linux and Fermi Linux ;). There was also some discussion about a
common HEP(iX) Linux.
FYI ATrpms started as a repo hosting software related to numerical and
statistical physics and natural sciences in general. Remnants of this
era are the teTeX/auctex support. Currently ATrpms has become a general
purpose repo, but I would like to get more science back in :)
