Debian in Sanger (Re: update on binary upload restrictions)

(Sorry for the noise, I reply on the list since Sanger's mail server
thinks I am a spammer.)

Dear Tim,

I am very interested to hear that Sanger is using Debian on thousands of
machines. Do not hesitate to tell us a bit more on
debian-med@lists.debian.org. Bioinformatics is part of our effort as we
include it in "pre-clinical research", and we would love to see our
priorities a bit more user-driven.

For the moment, I am finishing to improve support of multiple alignment
programs, and will work on EMBOSS with others soon.


Have a nice day,
