I'm sorry but I don't understand you here. Maybe too much "not" and a problem of
English from my part. What are you saying, creating a subgroup/subdir is helpful
yes or not?

Well, Debian Science Team has 886 projects (source packages?). It's a big
umbrella for all scientific packages. Maybe some subcategories (subgroups or
whatever) would attract the people for a more specific project than a generic
one. The problem them would be the borders, where a package/project goes to one
place or other.

About the robotic group .... I really don't know. Jochen? Jose?
