BOINC extension for Einstein@Home binary pulsar search


BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) is a volunteer project to have regular citizens help with their compute power to address large scientific challenges. For details on the science please inspect the project's home page. To contribute, follow the "Add Project" selection box of the BOINC manager or use the command line interface of the BOINC client.

This package provides an executable for the Binary Pulsar Search subproject of the Einstein@Home project. Regular users would auto-download that executable provided by the scientific project maintainers. The binary provided by this package is functionally equivalent to the official one. It was however compiled on the Debian build demons. As such it is available to many more platforms than what could possibly be provided by the scientists themselves. Also, recompiling the package is likely to yield an executable well-optimized for the local machine that outperforms the official executable.

Quite some also run the Debian-provided packages for security concerns. They already decided to trust the Debian community and appreciated that executable to ship with an inspectable source tree.
