This is a splendid idea IMHO as it would integrate Debian more with our
scientific routine. How do you think about having an optional ORCID
specification for the upstream developers? I am not sure if this should go
to debian/copyright (my preference) or to debian/upstream/metadata,
but if we think about Debian packages as a form of publication of
someone's scientific work, then the ORCIDs of upstream should not
be missed.

Thanks! For this project we should focus on the Debian side first and foremost.

I've started the proposal at https://wiki.debian.org/SummerOfCode2018/Projects/RecognizeDebianMedContributorsViaORCID

But we need to act quickly!

As for collecting ORCIDs from upstream, I think that is what https://github.com/citation-file-format/citation-file-format/ and https://github.com/codemeta/codemeta are already working on (see https://github.com/force11/force11-sciwg for more background)
