DTPOM: fasttree – phylogenetic trees from alignments of nucleotide or protein sequences

The next initiative I want to start is DTPOM (Debian Team Package Of the Month).
Each month an unfinished package from the task list of a team shall be finished and added to the archive.

This month I have choosen fasttree from the Debian Med Team. Unfortunately it is still in the new-queue and waiting for processing, so there is no link to the PTS page yet.
