Hi Steffen,

I am so sorry that I did not find time to test your recent work...

Since pkg-escience is very Java oriented, it can make sense to cluster
the programs in a separate repository if it can attract more
developpers. It was a nice idea to add a link to the package from the
pkg-escience SVN in Debian-Med's, but as a result it is not possible
anymore to make a full checkout if one does not have write access to
both repositories.

I just have requested to the Alioth admins to make Debian Med's SVN
repository write-accessible to all DDs (as we discussed this and nobody
raised objections)
Maybe you can do the same for pkg-escience?

(by the way, I do not use the "charles-guest" account anymore, can you
replace it by "plessy"?)

Have a nice day,
