I'm currently completing work on an up-to-date libossim package. I used
some work taken from your PPA package, but it had need some reshuffle
in order to be compliant with current Debian Policy, and I strongly
suggest you familiarize with it.

Please let me know about the policy and also provide some documentation on getting these packages in DebianGIS. 
As said previously my main interest
is allowing a fast injectiong of Orfeo Toolbox in DebianGis, and
your interest in the whole Ossim toolchain is welcome, because
I have not the time and energy to push it more, also because
its documentation and structure is still a bit confused and
requires time to spend to well understand the global design.
I'd like to see the Qt components in as well.

So ossim-core and ossim-dev is finished and I will push others in ossim chain (ossimplanet, ossimplanetQt, libwms, ossimplugins (gdal, contrib etc..) and ossim_qt4( no recent updates but have 2D viewer iview). 

New ossimGui is good but no idea about the stable verison of ossimGui. I will ask garret and find out that,

About Ossim (the lib) I'm not sure if supporting the MPI flavor should
be a priority, for instance. I would avoid having still another
horror story as in the HDF5 case. 
Can you give your advice?

No supporting MPI could be avoided for now. I too had such bad stories in packaging ossimpreadator and also I think OTB doesnt rely on OSSIM's MPI code. But I would ask OTB devs to have a word on it.
