I agree that the situation is somewhat strange, but I admit to like it. Manuel
(a DD by now) IMHO correctly indicated that the other tools that pdb2pqr
interacts with are all in DebiChem and that as such it would make sense for
pdb2pqr to be showing up there, too. Other candidates to move to DebiChem for
that reason are BALL, the MGLTools and the autodocksuite. We probably all agree
that it is up to the respective maintainer to decide where to officially anchor
some Debian maintenance. I personally would appreciate a dual team maintenance.
As long as the debian/control file indicates where to find the repository,
which could be any, we should not care. Actually, IIRC, I even explicitly asked
Manuel not to move his sources to strengthen our ties. If not, then I should
have done.

I don't know about what the exact status of the copyright issue is. But I know
Manuel to be at it.
