There is deb package for gvSIG 1.9 stable[1] so I'll try to get the
scripts updated and tested on next release.

Well I have gvSIG mobile on my linux and is a good and fast basic GIS
viewer. There is not so much soft of this kind on the foss4g realm, so
maybe it has its value. The footprint on disk is 11MB.

gvSIG mobile runs on a J2SE standard machine as it's based on the CDC
profile of J2ME witch is more or less a subset of J2SE 1.4, so I don't
think an emulator is needed (and I don't know any Windows Mobile
emulator for linux). In fact, the gvSIG mobile developers work using
the J2SE VM on their workstations.

The non-official version developed by Juan Lucas and others has some
nice features non-present on the standard, taking profit of linux
specific capabilities like using gpsd.

I can install one, another or both, is up to us, as a group to decide
what to include, isn't it?
