Re: [DebianGIS] current state

I've been using Debian for a couple of years now, and I've been
lurking on this list almost as long. I work as a project administrator
for the JUMP Pilot Project and as a programmer on OpenJUMP.

I've never made Debian packages before, but I have read a little about
what is required. I might be able to work on some Debian packages for
open source Java GIS programs and libraries. I'd like to get started
with a package for OpenJUMP and JTS, and I could probably follow up
with some packages for GeoTools.

If you guys could help me out with a question or two as I work through
the packaging process I'd be willing to take a stab at this. I think
I'll need to ask someone here to sponsor the packages.


P.S. - A package was made for OpenJUMP a long time ago, but I don't
think that it is maintained anymore.

Hi all.
Mainly thanks to the unbelievable effort by Frankie (backed up by the
work of others, of course), we now are getting back in a good shape.
Among the top-ranking packages, missing in lenny is only PostGIS:
and qgis:

Is anybody working on the remaining apps to be packaged?
I mean especially the java stuff:
* uDig
* gvSIG
and the Desktop/Analysis/Database
* TerraView
* PostLBS
* OpenModeller
* r-spatial

All the best.
