I've prepared something like 4 different TileCache packages since I
made the first one and never found anyone willing to upload them for
me. After that experience, it is true that I basically gave up.
However, the reason that I haven't been pushing on getting 2.10 into
Debian is because it's broken. The reason I haven't been doing a
2.10+n release is because I haven't had time. Since the version in
Debian works and doesn't have the bug, doing more work for no
benefit didn't seem like it made sense.
