A good idea.  You might want to carry this idea into the general
discussion on package organization now going on at debian-devel.  I
think the current directory based system is being replaced by a
database driven one, referred to as "package pools".

I think we need one such person -- would you like to volunteer?
Basically, we have a number of individuals maintaining, IMHO, a number 
of pretty high quality scientific computing packages for clusters, but
no one with the time to work on the web page, or coordinate the effort
as a whole.
