there is definitely a strong interest in the Debian Med project. The
computational needs of biologists are exploding, and cloud computing could be a
solution. However, I am already willing to mentor another project, the "Large
dataset manager", so whoever is intersted in having official EC2 images, please
step up. Otherwise, whether I am available will depend on the success of the
other project in getting accepted.
Lastly, as a caveat I must say that to use the Amazon computer cloud, one has
to install some non-free software written in Java…
