Hi Amarendran,

thanks for your interest in Debian.  I'm forewarding your full mail to
the Debian-Med packaging list.  It is really nice that you contacted
Debian with your mail but ftpmaster is probably the wrong place for this
kind of requests.  If you are interested in biological software I would
recommend subsrcibing the Debian-Med mailing list at


This list would be the first choice for the kind of requests you had
in your mail.

The actual packaging work of dialign-t was done by Charles Plessy and
I'm sure he will help you to apply the fixes that are needed (if there
are any).

Kind regards and good luck in finishing your PhD ;-))
