Cool! That's exactly the way I would have suggested because it works like a charm in Debian Med team with BioLinux (which is also an Ubuntu derivative). Is there some documentation (some kind of policy document to make this more visible for newcomers)? From several postings here I had the impression that Debian resources might be underestimated / rarely used. > However, we don't > decide when a new release is uploaded to unstable. Well, the question is whether this is actually a *decision* or rather a matter of time resources. > Francesco is the > administrator of DebianGIS. I know Francesco from some DebConfs in the past and I think he would not mind to get some helping hand. While Debian GIS is not my main focus and I'm quite far from considering myself as a GIS expert my OSM activities have brought me closer to Debian GIS and I'd be happy to sponsor packages after coordination with Francesco. I have no idea who strict he considers his "administrator" role but from my experience in other teams structures in Debian are rather flat - provided that you are not breaking anything it is fine to do something instead of waiting until somebody else have done it. > The DebianGIS process is also longer... > so the softwares are not immediately pushed in unstable. This is exactly the point where I would like to help if anyhow possible. To start with this help I also ported the Debian GIS thermometer once written by Francesco most probably in the intention to make the cooperation more effective: http://blends.alioth.debian.org/gis/thermometer/ubuntu_debian-gis_thermometer.html The port is using common Debian Blends techniques and I think I provided some extra features not available previously. So I'm quite serious to support the DebianGIS - UbuntuGIS cooperation to the best of my skills. Any ideas how I can be of more help are perfectly welcome.
