[1] Debtags are a means of classifying packages.

[2] RFP/ITP - Request for package / Intent to package - these are pseudo bugs that track which packages have been requested and whether someone is working on them.

[3] The list of bugs is a work in progress. It is not yet regenerated automatically, so may be out of date.

[4] The debian-science QA page at http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-science-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org&ordering=3 provides additional information.
