Re: RFS: nfft -- Library for computing Non-uniform Fast Fourier Transforms

I have followed the guidelines in http://debian-science.alioth.debian.org/debian-science-policy.html and created a git repository to manage the NFFT package. I then registered on Alioth and filed a request to be part of the debian-science project. I'll give you an update when I'll be granted the access to the debian-science repo and be able to push the first version of the package.

1. List policy.
2. Rationale: Its sufficient to find one mail in one folder rather than in
   my private one and the list folder created by procmail.

Well, you know I'm a frequent poster and rarely do top posting.  But
sometimes I see it comes easier to derive from inline posting if I
simply want to drop one idea.

I do not think that a simple tip to an obvious beginner qualifies as
tedious reminder and I wonder whether you who knows the policy in this
mail are trying to provoke just another reminder.

Kind regards

Easy guys, I have got the picture now. I'll avoid top posting and be careful with my email recipients in the future.

Please don't argue on such a trivial matter, it's a bit embarrassing for the "obvious beginner" in me :-)

Thanks for your tips guys.

Kind regards,
