* Package name    : su2
  Version         : 2.0.5
  Upstream Author : Susquared Developers <susquared-dev@lists.stanford.edu>
* URL             : http://su2.stanford.edu

  Programming Lang: C++, Python
  Description     : The SU2 software suite specializes in high fidelity PDE analysis and design of PDE constrained systems on unstructured domains. The suite itself is composed of several C++ analysis modules that handle specific tasks, including the solution of the PDE system, decomposition of the domain for parallel computations, grid deformation, and many other tasks required for shape optimization and sensitivity studies. Some specifics of these modules can be found on the SU2 Tools page of this documentation with more complete information available in the Developer's Guide. The current development of this code is done by the Aerospace Design Lab at Stanford University.

In addition to what Clint said, I would resommend to change the name to
something like "su2-pde" or "su2-toolkit" or "su2-pde-toolkit".

The reasoning is:

1) It's not obvious to a casual observer that "su2" is really su^2
   meaning SUU meaning "Stanford University Unstructured" (WTF is this
   last word when it comes to name a software package anyway)?

2) There's a tool named "su" which usage is kind of ubiquitous
   on systems of the Unix ilk, including Debian.  So I would say "su2"
   will be perceived by may as something improving on that venerable
   "su" utility (like "su 2.0") rather than being something completely
   unrelated.

I can certainly change the name as suggested. I will submit as su2-pde.

Solving PDEs numerically involves discretizing a solution domain with a
grid. The grids may be "structured" or "unstructured." A primary feature of
su^2 is its use of unstructured grids - hence the name.

I imagine I'll run into more difficulties with packaging. Is there anyone
who might be interested in sponsoring this package?

Cheers!
