Maxima Nightlies

PPA description

Nightly builds of maxima, a free and powerful Computer Algebra System.

This build comes in 3 flavours:
 - if maxima is invoked as "maxima -l sbcl" it is quite fast.
 - if it is invoked as "maxima -l gcl" a version compiled with a lisp that provides fast arithmetic for many number formats is used instead.
 - if maxima is invoked as "maxima -l clisp" or without any parameter it is extremely memory-efficient, instead.

Currently for Artful there is no build due to

This nightly build works as follows:
 - Every few hours launchpad mirrors the git repository from to
 - If this repository has changed causes the Head of the master branch of the repository and the packaging information from its DebianPackaging branch passed to a build server which creates a virtual machine. This step fails with a "failed to upload" if the repository has changed, but the master branch hasn't.
 - Afterwards a build is started whose result ends up here.
