We have some things in progress with Björn and other Elixir project
members to link tools with the github/bio.tools stuff. Things are going
slowly for some time. I am involved as part of biocontainers with Björn.

Idea is to refer to biotools identifiers (biocontainers -> biotools,
conda -> biotools etc..), and "inject" automatically in biotools the
availability of a "package" (docker, conda, .....)

Mickael and Hervé I think already worked in Debian to add some biotools
identifiers in DebianMed packages metadata
