Dear Rashad,
thanks for answering!

As you can see here:
the packages are building nicely.

But on my 12.10. starting GRASS returns:



   1) Have at your side all available GRASS tutorials

   2) When working on your location, the following materials
      are extremely useful:
      - A topo map of your area
      - Current catalog of available computer maps

   3) Check the GRASS webpages for feedback mailinglists and more:

Hit RETURN to continue
Starting GRASS GIS...
python: can't open file '/usr/lib/grass/etc/gui/wxpython/gis_set.py':
[Errno 2] No such file or directory
Received EXIT message from GUI.
GRASS is not started. Bye.


--> this means there's something wrong in the debain/rules

If you could fix that, I think we are well off.

Just branch with bzr:

change and upload again.

If you do not want to wait for LP builds, use pbuilder locally to test
your changes.

Feel free to ask if you have more questions!

Kind regards,
