The Debian GIS team is not against the new package, there is simply not
a lot of manpower in the team to maintain all our existing packages. You
clearly have an interest in the gpsmaster package, so I invite you to
help co-maintain it within the team. There are only a handful of people
somewhat active in the team, and not munch Java expertise, but for that
latter the debian-java list is a good option.

Please refer to the Debian GIS Policy for the team specific documentation:
