Thanks for your work on this.

I have a very good relation to David from Debian Med team (where he
entered Debian).  As far as I know (from mail and by personal
information from some other italian DD who knows him) David is quite
stressed and overworked with real life.  Recent mails I sended remained
unanswered despite I know him as very responsive in the past.  So we
should probably go on without him and IMHO it is perfectly in his
interest if we might move his packages to pkg-grass.  We also decided
to do this in the last IRC meeting.

I checked this but I got:

$ git-buildpackage
gbp:info: Orig tarball 'libgaiagraphics_0.5.orig.tar.gz' not found at '../tarballs/'
fatal: Path 'libgaiagraphics_0.5.orig.tar.gz.delta' does not exist in 'refs/heads/pristine-tar'
pristine-tar: git show refs/heads/pristine-tar:libgaiagraphics_0.5.orig.tar.gz.delta failed
gbp:error: Couldn't checkout "libgaiagraphics_0.5.orig.tar.gz": /usr/bin/pristine-tar returned 128

I'm not sure why this happened.  In the past this happened from time
to time and I was able to cure the problem by a fresh `gbp-clone <URL>`
but in this case I have a fresh checkout and all branches are there:

$ git branch
* master

Any hint?

Yep, I could do this.  If it is just my with my broken Git skills I might
just fetch the upstream tarball manually.  We can proceed with the other
packages step by step.

Thanks for your immense work on these packages
