recently, I've been working on packaging PostGIS 2.0 for Debian and now
consider it ready for uploading to unstable. I'm a DM and would also
appreciate upload rights for that package.

Some notes: I took great care to ensure postgis-2.0.3 won't break
existing installations of postgis-1.x. For that reason, the binary
package names now include a version, i.e. 'postgis-2.0'. Effective
upgrade from 1.x to 2.0 requires a dump/restore cycle and is left to the

Upstream is mixed about liblwgeom. Basically, at the moment, there is no
backwards-compatibility guarantee. Taking a conservative approach, I
thus added the full version to the binary package name, i.e.
liblwgeom-2.0.3. As postgis itself is currently the only user of that
library in Debian, that shouldn't be much of an issue. However,
spatialite for example may eventually use it as well.
