Re: Geant321 and geant4 in science package

I relaunch the question of GEANT4.
I tried the repository that you introduced me, but it wasn't satisfying (not up to date, I had some bug troubles...) The version 4.10 of Geant is out, so I had to recompile it and I wasn't satisfy to do it locally on all of my computer and only for myself. So I was wondering, since it is not DFSG-conformed due to an anti-patent clause in the license, isn't its place in the contrib part of the debian project ? If it is the case, with which contribution group should I get in contact ?

An other point, I otfen use this soft http://sourceforge.net/projects/plotdigitizer/ to get back the data from plots (mainly from old publications). I find it very useful, it is under GPLv2 or LGPLv2. I didn't find this packet in the debian science project. I would like to create it. I could start with this one first.

If you have some comments or some advices for a beginner, thanks in advance.

Hi Christophe,

I am the maintainer of geant321. Geant4 is not DFSG-conformed due to
an anti-patent clause in the license so we cannot maintain it as a
Debian official package [1].

However, Yngve Inntjore Levinsen (CC'ed) maintains an unofficial
Debian package of Geant4 in CERN [2], but it's quite a long time since
the last update. The packaging stuff is hosted on [3].

I'm very interested in debian since few years, in a good part because
the science packages are not bad. But I think that it should even
better with the geant4 package. I don't know why, geant3 is in
packages since years.
Maybe I can start contributions for packaging by that (I'm
physicist), but I don't know how to enter in contact with science
maintainers, and how to start.
