Re: bart - tools for computational magnetic resonance imaging

Hi Martin,

thanks for your interest in Debian Med.

Its very nice to see that upstream trusts the Debian Med team and is
approaching us directly.

I have not yet checked out this and before I do I would like to suggest
that you move the actual Debian packaging to git.debian.org where all
our packaging code resides.  This as several advantages (if interested
I could list them - one example would be that your work could be listed
on our imaging page[1] even in this stage).

My suggestion would be that you check out our team policy[2] that
explains how to maintain a package in our packaging Git.  Since we have
also a mentoring program called Mentoring of the Month[3] and there is a
free slot for December I wonder whether you like to become a MoM
student.  Considering that you are obviously comfortable with gbp I'm
quite positive that we will succeede in way less than a month.

What to you think about this?

Kind regards
