I browsed the debichem tasks and in addition to debichem-crystallography
it would also fit into "Output & visualization".

I will look into Debian Maintainer application next week. To start with,
your sponsorship is just fine.

Thanks, I applied today.

Today I noticed that you are also a maintainer of the debianized
quantum-espresso (QE) package. Since QE is debianized then also pwgui
(QE's input builder (GUI), it's part of QE,
http://www-k3.ijs.si/kokalj/pwgui/ ) could be debianized.
I can do it.
