metapackage for the BOINC client and the manager

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a software platform for distributed computing: several initiatives of various scientific disciplines all compete for the idle time of desktop computers. The developers' web site at the University of Berkeley serves as a common portal to the otherwise independently run projects.

This package depends both on the BOINC core client program that is required to participate in any project that uses BOINC, and the BOINC Manager, a graphical monitor and control utility for the BOINC core client.
