Sorry also from my side to push that hard about this.

I guess we can wait for the dependencies to propagate to unstable

For me it is not really important who would finally do the upload but
I'm in big favour of team maintaining the packages in an repository on
alioth.  Both packages would fit into the scope of pkg-perl team as well
as Debian Science team, also Debian Med Git is perfectly fine as we also
keep other non-medical/non-biological preconditions for other packages
there.  If I'm not totally misleaded both repositories are writable for
any DD and you could choose yourself in what team you feel the most
comfortable.  Once the packages are in a team repository and the
Maintainer is set as the team we could just discuss who might do the
final upload.

For the moment I have the problem that I can not clone the repositories
you mentioned above:

$ git clone  http://git.ligforge.imag.fr/?p=users/vdanjean/bio/libgsl-perl.git
Cloning into 'libgsl-perl'...
error: The requested URL returned error: 403 while accessing http://git.ligforge.imag.fr/?p=users/vdanjean/bio/libgsl-perl.git/info/refs
fatal: HTTP request failed
$ git clone  git://git.ligforge.imag.fr/?p=users/vdanjean/bio/libgsl-perl.git
Cloning into 'libgsl-perl'...
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
$ git clone  git://git.ligforge.imag.fr/?p=users/vdanjean/bio/libgsl-perl
Cloning into 'libgsl-perl'...
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

In case you might be short in time to do the migration to alioth
yourself (provided you like my suggestion at all), I'd volunteer to
create a repository in Debian Med from scratch (because I can not really
clone your work).  Just tell me what you consider the most
straightforeward way to team maintenance or whether you would like
to upload yourself.

Kind regards and thanks for supporting Debian Med
