Now that the xerces27 logjam is apparently relieved, mipsel should
build on the next attempt.

GRASS 6.3.0 is not intended to be a stable release (ie with ongoing
support), it is a beta "development preview" release of what the 6.4
stable release will be like. It is more stable than a CVS snapshot but
less than an official stable release.

I am sure 6.3.0 will be released before Lenny, the question is does
Debian want to use it?

& with those in lenny we can, I hope, finally have a modern qgis for
etch-backports. Yay.

+ proj 4.6.0 is now in lenny too.

nice progress folks!
