Thanks for spotting this.  Hopefully you will be able to drain from this
packaging some helpful hints.  I admit that I'm really concerned about
these uncoordinated effort at "third places".  Please invite the
maintainer of this package to work together with us in Debian GIS
repository.  When you do so please make pretty clear that his work will
be regarded nicely and I'm volunteering to sponsor his work to the
official Debian mirror.

I have no idea - usually the answer is lack of manpower wich never will
be fixed by this kind of uncoordinated efforts.

I do not think so.  Just feel free to ping me if you are in need of

Kind regards
