I now pushed your updates to packages.

Concerning the new additions, please try to add a description that is a bit
longer than the synopsys and consists of complete sentences (which can be
a challenge if the project homepage is too scarce, I can lend a hand).

And it would be better to add the packages to different modules; many of
them are added now with the aim of getting Sage, but are independent.
So I would add primecount and gfan to algebra, palp to maths,
python-lrcalc, python-primecountpy and python-pplpy to the same module as
their "base packages", and python-memory-allocator probably to
python-xyz. I would suggest to keep in sagemath.scm only the packages for
which Sage has become upstream, such as flintqs.

For tachyon, you use a patch and a phase; would only the latter not be
enough? At worst by using substitute* on the Makefile? See the recent
discussion on patches vs. phases.

I did not yet have a look at the sagemath-... packages. And for
pari-galdata, I wonder if there is not a better way so that it can also
be used by the pari-gp package. The problem with pari-gp is that it
cannot handle a search path with multiple directories, but that all data
files need to be put into the same place. And all data files add up
to about 200MB. One solution would be to add by default only the smaller
data files galpol (10MB), nftables (8MB), galdata (52kB!) and nflistdata
(4MNB). Actually, galdata is so small that we might just add it by default
to pari-gp. It is not a perfect solution, but would improve the package
at almost no cost, and apparently be useful for Sage.
