Re: [DebianGIS] Two weeks to get QGIS into the next Ubuntu 9.04 release
Sounds like bringing qgis into debian is harder than I originally
thought, but I haven't given up yet....

Petter, Francesco, Jurgen,
Are there any roadblocks to getting QGIS into Debian unstable?
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.
Can point me at the Debian policy/process that qgis should be following
(and possibly is not following yet)?
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
Ruben, do you still have the time to help qgis into debian?
Do you know what needs to be done, (and can point a newbie like me at
any grunt work needing to be done).
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.
Using the same repository, as suggested by Frankie sounds like it would
be helpful in the long term. Are there any reasons why this is not
Which repository should be used?
Do you still have the time to help bring qgis back into debian?
