[Pkg-grass-general] state of DebianGIS

Hi all.
Especially for newcomers, I believe it is useful to have an outline of the 
current status of the project; I list the most relevant issues, ass I see 
them, in order of priority of action, from high to low.

* libgdal1-grass: does not work;  when it will, it should be included in 
Debian testing
* qgis: no package in testing (0.6.0-2 in unstable, waiting for glibc); 
0.6.0-1 crashes when loading shapefiles (if using gdal-bin 1.2.6, not with 
* qgis-plugin-grass: not in testing [1] (what prevents it from this?); 
wouldn't it be better to include it in qgis package? (other distros do so 
* mapserver: lack of php support [2]
* grass: package in good shape; a few bugfixes upstream might suggest 
upgrading the package at some later stage
* libpostgis1-pg74: package apparently in good shape; looking forward to have 
it in testing (what prevents it from this?)
* gdal-bin and libgdal1: apparently all well here.

If you wish to use grass from within qgis (way cool!), you should *not* 
upgrade from gdal-bin 1.2.5 to 1.2.6, and download libgdal1-grass and 
qgis-plugin-grass from debianGIS.
All the best.
