Could not we settle something similar for science packages?
If you ask me the field "science" is a little bit unsharp. If you
want to attract people you need people in more specific fields.
It's quite unlikely that somebody in the field of chemestry will
package a geographical package which he will never use. In the
Custom Debian Distribution effort
I tried to give reasons why the support of special fields sounds
reasonable. So I see this general debian-science list as of
great value for general discussion and sharing ideas, but I
would prefer if some more CDDs (debian-physics, debian-chemestry,
etc.) would evolve and thus you will have good chances to find sponsors
in these fields.
