I'm not a Debian Developer, but I've been looking to become one for
quite some time. I'm a biologist with some background in bioinformatics
and I'd like to package this while going through the new maintainer
process. If you'd send me the webpage where I could download the
program, if one exists, or if not then the program itself I'll send out
an ITP and get started. Thanks!
