Still, if the packages are maintained they should end in Factory.

the science repo has its place and shall exist. scientific apps rarely follow
any software engineering route.. if one looks into the .spec files of some of
them would probably want to commit suicide immediately... Joke aside now.
It is no joke, sadly.
Academics are not terribly interested in coding, but more in that
their algorithms give some result. No blame there, but it leads to a
level of quality that is not satisfactory for distribution of their
code - especially should it become a hit record. Because there are
few "proven" libraries (e.g. gnutls is a proven library for SSL),
crosslinking to previously unseen projects is not all that rare.
Everybody who is willing to use autotools as the primary Makefile
generator gets the autotools and cross-distro packaging part done for
her/him. Call in early while your project is still small!
