How to contribute to Debian Med?

This page is for people who wonder how they could help the Debian Med project.



  • Package one of the most wanted packages from each section
    • Biology: Mauve ( ;o) this is a rather funny name conflict here, mauve is not only a multiple genome alignment tool, but also a java library. The real link should better be to here. I left a bit puzzled now, maybe a better package name would be bio-mauve? or genome-mauve?)

    • Epidemiology: NetEpi

    • Imaging: InVesalius

    • Hospital information systems: Fis GTM

  • Watch the list of bugs and fix bugs or try to provide a patch.

  • For ITPs please follow Debian Med policy

  • Make sure that your package is listed in our task list.

  • Have a look at the QA page of Debian Med packaging team

  • If you are not yet a developer but want to become a developer yourself you might like to start reading here.

Debian Med on alioth

  • debian-med.alioth.debian.org: It is autogenerated contend from the Blend toolkit, as well as extra informations with strong ties with the revision control system (in particular, the group policy).

Non-Debian projects at Medical Free/Libre and Open Source Software

The MedFLOSS project is maintaining a nice list of free medical software which is not yet available in Debian. The most interesting feature of this list is the ranking which is created by user interaction which gives some measure how attractive a project might be for users. So just visit this page and find a target for Debian packaging.
