Sounds good. Feedback appreciated. We're just finishing up release 8.1.1
which will already have a small sign of Debian Med support. In the
QluMan GUI, we've added "chroot management" in which you will be able to
select DebianMed tasks. Initially, we have tasks defined for NGS and
Imaging packages. This will then install the packages in that task, that
we already have backported and support (currently only a small subset of the
corresponding real Debian Med Task, but this will grow as we keep
on backporting).
