I understand. So there isn't set any concrete roadmap for UbuntuGIS up?
Seems like it is in stage of proposal and DebianGIS compliance for now.

First, as I moved from Debian to Ubuntu, I'm strongly interested in such 
a project like UbuntuGIS.

Second, I'd not define myself as a real GIS person. I work as a GIS 
programmer for small company in Poland. After hours I'm mainly a user 
but also contributor for a few Open Source projects i.e. QGIS, small 
contribs for GDAL/OGR, Shapelib etc.

Third, I'm very new deb packager. I did first steps (debs) but I need 
some guidance, definitely.

So, I'm intersted to get involved in UbuntuGIS but I'm not able to lead 
the project. If there is someone who has some idea that's great!

Packages: I won't say here what should be packaged urgently but I'm 
ready to participate in discussion about it, no problem, I'll do my 
best. I'm also in contact with real GIS persons and Open Source Software 
users so I have consulting possibilities if needed.
