I was once addressing the packaging of e-cell myself but failed somewhere in 
the middle - three years ago? Somehow I feel that it would be lovely if you 
would find some energy reserves of yours to address the packaging of E-cell 
as I presume it would considerably raise the acceptance of Debian in 
biological labs.

Andreas or Charles (who also lives in Japan, btw), will add you to Debian Med 
and with it comes the access to the svn repository. This is a lovely setup 
for the communication between the sponsor, the sponsee and the community. It 
is (particularly for larger projects) only the "debian" folder that is 
injected to the repository, btw. Instructions are on the Debian-Med wiki 
page.  I do not see any principal difference to general Open Source 
developments.

Let us wait for what the direct communication between you and Changyan will 
bring. Knowing that you are affiliated with e-Cell, I of course hope that you 
will focus on a packaging of that rather than on the library underneath and 
hope to win you both for a fruitful collaboration in Debian Med.

Best regards

Steffen
