A TODO list for DebianGis

Package updates

  • geos needs updating to 2.2.3 at least and 3.0.0 RC is also available
  • gmt needs updating to 4.2.0
  • qgis needs updating to 0.8.1
  • avce00 needs updating to 2.0.0
  • batik needs updating to 1.7beta1
  • buoy needs updating to 1.8

Long term goals

  • Quality Assurance:
    • Implementing a piupart-based thingy to periodically check installation status of all interested packages
    • Things to add to the status script: RC counters et al, see ["DebianGis/EdiMeetingMinutes"]

  • DebianGis Backports: Adding an up-to-date backported toolchain (gdal+grass+qgis+postgis+mapserver at least) for stable

  • Java related tools: Java has become a primary tool language for GIS serious application. We miss many of them and Java is moving to main.
  • Perl GIS modules: CPAN maintains a large collection of GIS related modules that we have not in the archive.
  • GRASS add-ons: contributed modules for GRASS.
