Bug#654748: O: qlandkartegt -- GPS mapping (GeoTiff and vector) and GPSr management

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the qlandkartegt package. I do no longer use it
enough and do not have the time to give it the attention it deserves.
Open bugs are few (3), upstream is great and responsive. The packaging
is fairly modern (3.0, quilt), currently carries no upstream patches.
VCS is Git on collab-maint. Popcon is > 500. The package requires an
update to the latest upstream release and some attention to the bugs.

I will also orphan the related 'garmindev' package in a second step.

If a non-DD wants to take care of this (fairly easy) package, I'm willing
to sponsor uploads.

The package description is:
 This package provides a versatile tool for GPS maps in GeoTiff format as
 well as Garmin's img vector map format. QLandkarteGT is the successor of
 QLandkarte. Among various improvements (e.g. 2D/3D map rendering and
 reduced resource demands) the major difference is its
 device-independent architecture, which is not limited to Garmin devices
 anymore. Therefore, the package also does not include device drivers.
 Drivers for a number of Garmin devices are available from the
 qlandkartegt-garmin package.
 Additionally, QLandkarteGT serves as a frontend to the GDAL tools, to
 make georeferencing of scanned maps feasible for users. In contrast to
 similar tools (e.g. QGis) its straightforward interface is especially
 suited for non-scientific users.
