I am active in Debian Med and associated brands that have quite some
interest in getting the software used across distributions to tackle
biomedical research problems. My major concern is to avoid redundancy
in packaging and as such help freeing resources towards sharing
scientific workflows on a higher level. In that sense, talking
about Ubuntu is boring to me, it is just too natural to have the
collaboration happen. My prime interest is in a knowledge transfer
within Debian also on the application level. As such I am primaritly
interested in tapping into the expertise of upstream and work at
getting them to join us as DMs directly. Secondly, I am preparing
for active communities sharing infrastructures in a cloud environment.
