Hi Jerome,

I guess you want to maintain this package in Debian Science team and
thus I'll forward the ITP to the list.  I have also proactively added
the package to the mathematics task which will let the package show up
once it is in Debian Science VCS.

Kind regards

         Andreas.

It is a Debian package for a GAP package, as such it must be
where GAP stands. There is a potential issue here, I guess:
there are a lot of GAP packages, more or less small:
may a sub-project be opened ?

Best wishes,
Jerome

I think a specific sub-project might be a bit overkill here.  However,
it might sense to create a metapackage gap-all (or whatever name sounds
apropriate) which Depends from all such gap-* packages and contains a
list with short descriptions in its long description.  However, as long
as no such metapackage is created I do not see a real problem in listing
all gap-* packages in the mathematics task (at least from my naive point
since I'm not a specific mathematics user). 

Kind regards

        Andreas.
