Shared software installed in /usr/grads

Really, we should find a way to have user-installed software all in one place, rather than in lots of separate places. This would save us disk space as well as time, so this page is an attempt to start doing that.

Here is the software currently installed in /usr/grads (likely incomplete):


Since there are a lot of cooks that have access to the /usr/grads pot, in the list above I have implemented some conventions. The list will be alphabetical, contain the software name, relevant links, and version number, and will be concluded with the date it was last updated, and by whom. Please feel free to discuss / argue / refine this below.

There is very little space available in /usr/grads/. I think the best solution is to continue installing things wherever one likes, but linking to it in /usr/grads/. This also has the advantage of allowing one person to upgrade the software without actually removing someone else's installation. We should figure out how to easily ensure that binaries and (e.g.) man pages both get linked.

Also, its nice to have a description for unfamiliar things.
