Other question: Does anybody see a reason to NOT release a set of
metapackages with the gis stuff as it is prepared now? So if nobody
will insist I might consider just releasing version 0.1 of debian-gis to
have a chance to get it right into Squeeze.
As I said: Every input of GIS experts is helpful but I would even now
consider the existing stuff as helpful for GIS users and thus I do not
see any reason not to proceed. This might lead to mentioning Debian GIS
in the Squeeze release notes - exactly the place where I want to see
it placed and which might bring new users + developers to the project.
