So is your home page. I would presume the Debian-Med community http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-med/ to be interested, too, and expect you to eventually find a sponsor, too. If you have not already, I think you are ready to prepare an ITP (interest to pack, http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/) for your package, which is commonly regarded as the entry point of every new package. Once the package is available for download somewhere, you should add this info to your ITP report. Something I would like to discuss is to what degree your package is in conflict with, say, boinc-client, another idle time scavenger. I do not think that both should be installed on a single machine, but is this something that should be stated as a conflict in the control file? Rather not, does it?. Best regards Steffen
