Dear PyMVPA Developers and Users,

The NeuroDebian [1] Team (compare to PyMVPA Team [1a]) is asking
for your support.  We are hoping to obtain funding for continued
maintenance, development and expansion of the NeuroDebian project.  If
you are using a Debian or Ubuntu operating system for your neuroscience
research you might already benefit from our efforts of integrating
neuroscientific software into these platforms.  For the past 5 years our
team has provided Debian/Ubuntu packaging, maintenance and
troubleshooting for open source software, such as ANTs, FSL, Caret,
MRIcron, NiPy(PE), PsychoPy, PyMVPA and Voxbo (see [2] and [3] for more
complete references).  Having research software developed by different
groups with different technologies properly integrated into a uniform
environment allows scientists to easily maintain a versatile up-to-date
research environment with just of few commands/mouse-clicks and focus on
actual research instead of tedious system administration tasks.

To be able to continue providing this service to the community for the next
years we are planning to submit a proposal (with PI Dr. James V. Haxby) in
response to NIH program announcement PAR-08-010: Continued Development and
Maintenance of Software (R01) titled

  NeuroDebian: reliable and versatile research platform for neuroscience

Please see the attached abstract for a more detailed description of the

If you would like to see the NeuroDebian project to continue its development,
expand coverage of relevant software and provide additional features, such as
easy cloud-computing setups, we would be thankful if you send your "Letter of
Support" via email [4] (preferably a PDF) or fax [5] to provide additional
weight for our application.  For your convenience, we have composed a
generic letter template [6].

Thank you very much in advance for your support,

the NeuroDebian team
