First of all, thanks for your work. I was considering doing it too,
but only after presenting my M. Sc. dissertation. I personally use
LAM and Debian, so i would like to contribute to both projects.
Concerning your question about the PS documents, i'll agree with
Manoj Srivastava <firstname.lastname@example.org>: one idea is to separate the
two packages: one for the sources, the other one for the
documentation. What do you think?
This approach is interesting since it will permit the subsequent
additionn of LAM and MPI documents.
