Hello Mates,

my Name is Sascha Manns from the openSUSE Project.
In the past i have seen, that we haven't enough free Software Programs for 
doctor's needs or for clinical Research and 
not enough packaged Software for our Distributions. So i started a openSUSE 
Subproject, called "openSUSE Medical".Our 
Team has the Goal to make free medical Software available in the openSUSE RPM 
Packages. Er are using for 
becoming an Idea for what to package the next.
But sometimes we have Problems since Packaging (maybe Compiler Errors or so 
on). And i think if i have fixed any Error, 
it is maybe interesting for other People who try packaging the same Package.

Actual Results

We have at the Moment three Distribution specific Package Groups (IIRC):

* fedora-medical
* debian-med
* opensuse-medical.


* Create a Medical Software Group for each Distribution
* Create a Mailinglist who is subscribed the Distribution specific People and 
the Upstream Projects. So the Upstream 
knows very fast about Problems.
* Collaborative packaging
* Providing the Software for each Distribution/Package (rpm, deb and so on).
* Creating LiveCD/DVD for each Distribution (last days i released the pre-alpha 
of opensuse Images)
* Creating VMWare Image (VirtualBox, VMWare) for each Distribution


ATM We having in Germany and many other Countrys just proprietary Software. If 
we can provide more Medical Software we 
can help to stabilize doctor's and clinical's Budged. On the other Hand we can 
support Medical People in the 3rd World. 


We have many ways to reach that. One of them is the BuildService: The BuildService can create 
Packages for Fedora, Debian, Mandriva and Ubuntu (sure openSUSE too ;-)). Our 
actual Packages for openSUSE can found 
there: The src.rpm's can 
used as base for building rpm's.

What do you thinking about my Idea? Have we any people who wants to work in 
that Project?

Sincerely yours
