When visiting <URL:http://www.terralib.org/> to look for a new
release, I discovered that people are expected to register their email
address to be able to fetch the LGPLed source, and to add insult to
misery the web form isn't working.  I tried to give it a fake mail
address and it refused to accept the input.  It is probably requiring
javascript, which I keep turned off for security reasons.

Anyway, with an upstream that refuses anonymous download, I am not
really interested in maintaining the package.  I do not want to spend
the extra time to jump through the hoops created.  Are anyone else in
the Debian GIS group interested in maintaining terralib?

CC to upstream, in case they are interested in changing their
publishing practice.
