Hi Christian,

I'm mainly interested in biophysics packages (e.g. coot, qtiplot,
xdrawchem). As for Gromacs, we're using it quite a lot (mainly on
an HPC cluster). However, our software developer makes frequent
changes, so an external (to our department) package does us no
good. Since he also prefers to install the package manually on an
NFS server ("/usr/local"), gromacs is not on my OBS list.

What's exactly the problem?

With so many maintainers I'm sure that if any of you create submit
requests they will be reviewed/accepted. There are at least four
names in that list that I recognise since they are very active.

There are to many maintainers?

If you have so many responsible persons, nobody feels to be responsable
at all. :-(

I've updated the project statement [1] and I'm trying to find some more
maintainers that are willing to invest some work into the repostitory.
