Thank you Andreas.

Yes, the repo at [2] was the missing link for me as I wasn't sure what
else needed to be done there. I was unsure also as to whether it should
go in -dev or not as there are several other Python libraries in just
meteorology, but by your description I'd say it should indeed be in -dev.

It looks like there are a few other problems with the package (I forgot
to update the autopkgtest to use ulmo instead of fluids, the Python
package I started with to package ulmo) and some d/copyright issues, so
I'll have to prepare some amendments as well.
