My two cents :-)
i concur. i think electrical is a pretty important field to break
out. i would prefer to completely spell out all of the categories to
eliminate any potential confusion or ambiguity. also, i've included
some other scientific fields that i think are important (not sure how
many free software/debian packages there are in these fields
currently, but hopefully that will improve as more people adopt free
i think all the science metapackages should depend on tex (and
associated packages) because it is useful in all scientific fields.
also, i think the other fields should depend on mathematics.
