Neue gdal version

Hallo list, hallo Jochen,
(Jochen beeing my gdal sponsor)

a few days ago someone posted an error of my gdal-package [1] on its
related developer list [2]. The problem has been fixed upstream and
I want now repackage gdal to eliminate this bug in debian.

The problem is, that there is no official gdal release of version
1.2 so I decided in december to package a cvs snapshot (s. here [3]
for a full discussion of the reasons).

My question is now: should I fix the above mentioned bug based on
the already used snapshot from november or can I just release a new
package version named 1.2+cvs.20040212? This package would of course
not only fix the  bug but also include new features of gdal and fix
some other bugs.

I would prefer to do the second option but I am not sure whether
the tarball will be accepted then.
