Indeed, my initial approach of having the definition in the packages
using them is not sustainable.
Although I was initially thinking that it would be better to to this for
Lenny+1, why not moving all of this to a med-* CDD package… Shall we
create med-mime, or use something like med-common ? Once this is
decided, I can move the entries I created and correct the packages in
which they are currently stored.
PS: Pity that ABI did not respond. By the way, I found another package
that can read Abif files, both .ab1 and .fsa, although I do not know it
it can be useful with the .ab1 files.
Have a nice day,
