You may have noticed that you can specify per project, if it is already available as
official distro package.
Now I just added some pages for you, based on this information:
Sorted by popularity (measured by number of views of each project - I know this is not
the ultimate criteria, but the best I could get) you can see a distro specific list of
projects, that are not yet available as official packages.
That's really cool and might provide a really interesting source of
information if we want to define our next targets for packaging.
BTW, in Debian there is Popularity Contest which tries to implement
an objective measure based on the number of installations and actually
really used and actively upgraded packages. We are listing the popcon
results on the Debian Med tasks pages for each program. However, we
are aware that also this measure is not really the best criterion to
have objective values for certain reasons.
These lists can be found ...
- for Debian Med at http://www.medfloss.org/node/350
This is a really great list. I just linked to it from our development
page and our ToDo list in the Debian Wiki. Is there any way to
report projects which are wrongly listed on the page above. For
instance entry number 43 "Visualization Toolkit (VTK)" is packaged
for Debian (libvtk5.4 in unstable and libvtk5.2 in testing). Or is
the list just based on stable Debian releases?
Hope these can help you a bit in deciding which project should be
packaged next or are worth to be added to your actual task list?! Please let me know in
case you can think of additional information that could be of any use to you.
As I said it is very helpful and I'm hoping for more user interaction
on your side to get more values for evaluation.
Thanks for your effort
