Debian is completely volunteer driven and you will not get any
financial support from Debian. Please read http://www.debian.org
to learn more about Debian.

Our technical support could be to package your software. To enforce this
I listed the project at the Debian-Med packages. You have two options:
1) Ask for packaging. Perhaps some friendly interested Developer
(or a not-yet-developer which is sponsored --> read more about
sponsoring at the Debian pages!!) will do the work. The simple
way to ask for packaging is by querying a bug report against
the WNPP (Work needing and prospective packages) meta package.
Just use the program "reportbug" of your Debian GNU/Linux system
to file this bug report. It is really easy to use. If you
do not have acces to a Debian system and have really no idea how
to file a RFP (Request For Packaging) bug feel free to ask me
and I will do that for you.
2) Just do the packaging yourself and get a Debian developer as
sponsor for your package. To do this it is necessary to read
the documentation for new maintainers at the Debian web pages.
