Axiom Developers;

The following draft white paper by David Joyner and William Stein
(Sage developers) potentially affects NSF funding of other open source
computer algebra projects including Axiom, I think Axiom developers
might also care to comment to the authors. 

We probably all agree that more NSF funding for open source computer
algebra would be a good thing, although we might (strongly?) disagree
on the priorities, e.g. Axiom versus Sage versus Maxima. Yet I think
it is important that we somehow manage to present a united front to
potential the funding authorities. Do you think that this white paper
accomplishes that?

The authors being Sage developers, naturally present Sage in more
detail than the other open source systems mentioned in the paper. 
Should other projects be asking for "equal time" in such a document
or should each project submit a white paper of it's own?

Bill Page.

Hello Emil, SAGE developers:

Following a suggestion of Emil Volcheck of ACM/SIGSAM and Bob Grafton
of NSF, and William and I have drafted a "white paper" on NFS funding
of mathematical software. It is at

Comments would be greatly appreciated. Please be as critical as you like.
