There was a slight shine of Debian-Physics at horizon but nothing really

really happened and because medical research needs all this biological
stuff I just care for it. My strong suggestion would be to join the
Custom Debian Distribution effort to make profit from the techniques which
will be developed there. The more we use common techniques the less work
