Hello everyone,

We would like to announce the NeuroFedora initiative[1] that we have
recently begun working on. Our goal is to provide a ready to use,
Free/Open source environment for researchers to use, to enable Free/Open

NeuroFedora is based on the Fedora Linux distribution[3] that is part of
the RedHat/Scientific Linux/CentOS eco-system. It is still in the early
stages, but we already have a few of the commonly used computational
neuroscience simulators available for use:

- Genesis
- Moose
- Brian2

Neuron, PyNN, and a host of other tools are currently being worked upon
for inclusion also. More information can be found in the

We welcome feedback, comments, ideas, and discussion to improve
NeuroFedora. It is purely a volunteer driven community project, so we
welcome contributions in all forms. You can get in touch with us using
the communication channels listed here[4].
