How does gpsmaster compare to gpsprune and qmapshack? It seems to
overlap with their functionality, and both are already available in Debian.

The gpsmaster project doesn't seem to use a bugtracker nor version
control, so I'm doubting the maturity of this project.

Would you be willing to help co-maintain the gpsmaster package in Debian
since the Debian GIS team is low on manpower?

Kind Regards,
