Thanks a lot for the summary and all your previous work you've spent
into this.  As far as I understand your summary it would be even
"burning" a student if we would throw theses packaging task on a
student in a GSoC / outreachy project (I'm aware that we are usually
not supporting packaging tasks in these projects but it could be an
exception in case my suspicion would be wrong).

I personally do not see any capacity I could provide myself despite it
would be really helpful for Debian Med and Debian Science to cover these

Very good to know.  Please keep on your great work
