Re: Debian science robotics subgroup

Hi Leopold,

since you give permission to post on Debian Science I do so in public.
Please always keep the blog posting of our beloved DPL in mind!

I'm personally not scared by the flat name space.  I do not think that
"hiding" metainformation in a subgroup / subdir is not really helpful in
the end.  The only thing that might be worth considering, is whether you
think an own Debian Robotics Blend would fly (in terms of contributors
and number of packages).  In this case a separate packaging team might
make sense.
