I have to admit that while I feel able to hold a general workshop for
sure I really intend to stick to the medicine audience for several
reasons. The work inside Debian Med has shown that we have some
specific topics to deal with and also the audience migt be different
when targeting explicitely on packaging of medical applications. So
yes, I would explicitely like to call the workshop:
Debian packaging of medical and bioinformatics applications
and I would like to stay explicitely inside the medical track.

Because you are giving examples: My very first Debian talk was at LSM
2001 and if you browse onto the very bottom of my talks page
you see it is more or less this topic. While this talk somehow reaches
into the history of Debian Med (even this could serve as the beginning
of the project without featuring the name) I have learned a lot about
these issues meanwhile and I'm perfectly convinced that I would like to
target the workshop at people who have some medical background.
And no, if other people without such background want to join I will not
kick them out of the room.
