I hope it was an enjoyment to work in the Debian Med team - thus I just
post to the list because the following is definitely interestint

Sure it is.

We definitely can proceed like in the case of FreeDiams. Just tell me
if there is some preliminary packaging stuff and simply commit the
debian/ directory to the SVN. Either me (or somebody else of the team)
will have a look and than we proceed as before. IMHO we have a lot of
time until Debian 7.0 will be released to stabilize FreeMedForms in

Great. Guessing from past experience the packaging of new upstream
versions is not that hard as the initial packaging so I do not expect
any real problems here to move this quickly to Debian unstable. It
might be that we should even use the experimental distribution as long
as Squeeze is not yet released - but that's just a detail.
Kind regards and thanks for working together with Debian Med
