well, no, someone else did that work. I mostly just try to be a facilitator
between the different projects and push the various teams to work together
in a single repository (see below). and I have no opinion on the state of
the various issues needing attention; I have not reviewed them closely.
A good first step towards finally breaking the log-jam is to pick a venue:
QGIS's OSGeo SVN or DebianGIS's SVN repo? I am sure it is not a big
problem for the Debian/Ubuntu package teams to be granted write access
to either/both, as needed.
Independent of that, I would guess that DebianGIS wants to maintain its
own repo for branches, non-ubuntu tweaks, etc. But perhaps the core could
be linked/imported from the QGIS repo with a SVN external link*, and then
minorly patched in the DebianGIS repo, as required?
