Greetings! There is considerable interest in the maxima community to
get FeynCalc working with Maxima, the open source branch off of to
formerly popular commercial product Macsyma. We feel this would
extend the availability of your fine work considerably, even making it
possible to distribute with the popular GNU/Linux distributions all
over the world. Is there any interest in the FeynCalc community to
help with such an effort? If so, it would probably be helpful for
such interested persons to identify themselves and their area of
expertise. Also, suggestions for the simplest way to proceed would be
helpful. Right now our best option appears to be to start with a
rudimentary mathematica to maxima translator called mockmma. I don't
suppose that mathematica happens to compile its code to lisp at an
intermediary stage which can then be inspected by the user?

Take care,
