Lets talk about debian/upstream/edam (Was: r18733 - in trunk/packages/bowtie/tags: . 1.1.1-2/debian 1.1.1-2/debian/upstream)
the recent adding of debian/upstream/edam files without any announcement
seems to create some confusion:

Charles had removed the file which was recently added at the sprint - I
guess because he was not aware about its nature. I think before those
files will be added we should talk about it and send a short
introduction to the list.
Hervé, Steffen, would you be so kind to do this?
BTW, when realising that you are not using UDD (at least I guess so
from the fact that there is no hit in
$ grep -Ri udd trunk/community/edam
) and when also noticing that you fetched some metadata in
which is completely available in UDD you most probably are suffering
from an unfortunate design for the problem you want to solve. I admit
I'm coming up a bit late with this since the Sprint is over but I have
realised this right now. We should have definitely talked about the
usage of UDD which contains *all* machine readable metadate about our
packages in a very easily accessible form.
