I have v1.0.0 locally installed after trivial changes to the debian/ dir
in the d-gis repo... but as I said to Frankie, I use Qgis in a very
basic way... I haven't tried things like the python stuff or the
grass-plugin... I asked for testing on debian-qgis but just Frankie
proposed (ad commited) changes... no other comments were received...

As I said before I'm using just basic features, It should be enought
reason to don't maintain it just myself, but I will be happy to offer
help if Qgis is maintained by a team (or a more experienced user).

Yes, I still have time and interest...

No, I can't point out the work needed... I was doing just QA work:
fixing lintian warnings, naming conventions..., you can count me as a
newbie too...

There are no reasons, AFAIK... Jürgen can work on debian-gis repo, or we
can send patches to him for his repo if he is interested... It's the
same for me...
