Hopefully not muddying the waters, but a new "debian-science-users" list could be created and "debian-science" left for package concerns (or package/user overlap?). The new list would have the advantage of being explicitly user-centric in name. It would also be a fresh place to intice back any users that may have left this list due to the increased focus on packaging. The downsides are having yet-another-list, and that purely user-oriented folks that are still here would need to move. 2c, -Brett.
