Am I right, that we already agreed that you take over these packages from
Giovanni Sucameli (brushtyler)

AFAICT GDAL (1.9.2) is currently not depending on freexl.

reverse depends of libxml2:

mapnik, mapserver and mapserver56 are outdated anyway and can probably be
ignored and marked obsolete, I suppose.

reverse depends of spatialite:
qgis, qgis-common, qgis-dev

So we need a libxml2 update and a rebuild of mapserver6, pdal and tinyows after
that, before being able to upgrade spatialite.

That in turn requires rebuild of GDAL, QGIS and pyspatialite.

GDAL should probably be updated to 1.10 (with freexl support) in the process
(lots of rdepends there).

How do we coordinate something like that?
