Hi, Andreas.

OK, if everyone agrees that this PPA is now redundant I'll abandon any
attempt to make use of it in Bio-Linux and, from my point of view, the
PPA can be deleted.

At present, the Debian-Med Ubuntu PPA is not used in Bio-Linux 8.0.8.
The only systems that will break if you remove your packages are mine
and I'll fix them. Please go ahead and remove your packages and, if you
think the PPA is now redundant/harmful I think it should be deleted.
