DebianGis package is stalled at 0.11.0 since last september with
changes from me and Ruben. Uploading that version is pointless,
and still it is needed to (eventually) merge Jurgen version
and prepare a final candidate for unstable. As already said
I'm NOT the candidate Qgis maintainer, Ruben proposed himself
for that. It requires a very dedicated maintainer who is
able to follow upstream development, merge suitable patches
for main issues and produce a new package almost from scratch at every
new release. Basically too many efforts for me, I prefer dedicating
my efforts to more mature products.
Also having Ruben and Jurgen working separately on different repos
does not help.
