It has become quite silent about this issue and I can understand
listmaster to ask for seconders. So what do you think about my
suggestions to make Debian GIS more popular than it currently is? I
think it is a shame that Debian GIS is quite unknown to potentially
interested persons and please trust me: I asked a lot of people when I
did talks about Blends and mentioned Debian GIS as a potential Blend -
there was nobody aware of this project whereever I asked. And there
where people around which are working with GIS software. I also
continue to think that we should try to involve OSM into the Debian
This all makes IMHO a lot of sense to discuss on a mailing list and
especially if we are in the process of a release mentioning such a
mailing list in the release notes would give the project a lot of
attention and probably new supporters.
