Please unblock package debian-gis

As announced in [1] I now uploaded debian-gis metapackages targeting at
Wheezy.  The changes in the debian-gis package are to a large extend
auto generated by blends-dev and the full debdiff (attached
debian-gis_0.0.2.debdiff.gz) is a bit hard to read because the files in
tasks/ are serving at the same time used as documentation for the Debian
GIS web sentinel[2].  There is no reasonable way to maintain this in a
separate source so the diff is larger than you would usually accept
these days.  However, this was explained in [1] and was done this way in
the last releases as well (and recently for other Blends).

To enable you concentrating on the *relevant* changes which are caused
due to changes in the package pool (some packages became removed and
some became accepted since the last generation of the metapackages) I
have split of the parts of the debdiff which are more easy to inspect to
see what relevant changes in the dependencies have actually happended.
Please feel free to inspect:

  diff -Nru debian-gis-0.0.1/debian-gis-tasks.desc 
  --- debian-gis-0.0.1/debian-gis-tasks.desc      2010-07-07 12:10:02.000000000 
  +++ debian-gis-0.0.2/debian-gis-tasks.desc      2013-04-02 12:02:12.000000000 
This shows in the most simple way what recommends were added / removed

  diff -Nru debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/changelog debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/changelog
  --- debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/changelog<->2010-07-07 11:09:29.000000000 +0200
  +++ debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/changelog<->2013-04-02 11:50:56.000000000 +0200
  diff -Nru debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/control debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/control
  --- debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/control<--->2010-07-07 12:10:03.000000000 +0200
  +++ debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/control<--->2013-04-02 12:02:16.000000000 +0200
  diff -Nru debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/control.stub 
  --- debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/control.stub<------>2010-07-07 11:28:01.000000000 
  +++ debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/control.stub<------>2013-04-02 11:59:57.000000000 
This extract from debdiff shows the changes inside debian/.

    This was created using
      wdiff debian-gis-0.0.1/debian/control debian-gis-0.0.2/debian/control
    and is a better way to see the differences in the list of Recommends / 
    inside the metapackages than a plain diff.

Feel free to ask for any further information if needed.

Kind regards and thanks for working on the Wheezy release
