Ouch, sorry.  I missed to add this folder to my .muttrc right after
subscribing in July, when I was working on the OSGeo4W qgis package -
and unfortunatly I wasn't even surprised to see no traffic here.  I
wasn't even sure anymore, if I had subscribed here at all.

Back then I was nearly finished with packaging qgis, but ran into some
problems with the still current GRASS package and postponed further work
until the newer one was ready.  I didn't anticipate that it would take
this long.

Anyway, that's past.  I have now packaged QGIS without the GRASS plugin
for now.  I've uploaded Quantum GIS 1.0, Qt 4.4.3, SIP 4.7.9, PyQt 4.4.4
and GSL 1.12.
