 * Quite intensive activity to fix major issues with gdal, mapserver and postgis.
 * Qgis is out of main, probably not in Lenny. Helpers are (possibly) working on that.
 * Frozen major upgrades for HDF libraries. AFAIK recent major releases are still not sufficiently tested with the heavy weights packages.

2008-05:
 * Ossim stuff uploaded onto svn repo, still far from being releasable, but it appears having some shape.

What's up in DebianGis?
