Well, as I tried to explain - official packages need an official
tar archive that has to be builded and signed by a Debian
maintainer. So it is not possible to just take over your deb.
If you think the best method to provide cdmedicpacsweb
as a deb on your site than I have to turn all the files back
into a tar archive. This is possible in principle but not really
straightforeward and at least an unusual way to distribute
a free software project.

Can you please be a little bit more verbose? Are you refering to
the issue that is reported as bug
You seem to have found a workaround for this. Could you send
a patch to the e-mail address of this bug (or give me a hint how
to work around this problem). Have you contacted the developers
of CTN about the problem? What did they answered

Well, in most cases Ubuntu packages tend to work more or
less on Debian. But this is not the problem - we just want to
build a complete working environment for medical care inside
Debian. People tend to share the precondition that Debian
is hard to install and Ubuntu is much more user friendly. We
try to prove those people wrong for the field of medical care.

The best strategy to get working official packages is to file bug
reports and provide patches to the maintainers. Perhaps you
consider to subscribe the quite low volume debian-med mailing
list to stay informed about the issues of free medical imaging
software. Here several gifted and knowledged people are
hanging around which might increase productivity if we get your
input about problems.
