ossim, R, OpenCPN, geodata: fixed some errors/typos which were causing problems
deegree: chmod is failing. needs to be looked at.
main.sh, services: setup.sh must come first, when using a \
  line continuation no chars must come after the \ (not even a space or #)
gpsdrive: I'll fix this later today or tomorrow; have it working locally.
  * need to sync with new osm2pgsql osm_local DB for Mapnik support
pgRouting: reactivated for further testing (hungry -dd now commented out)
main_docs: fixed help icon
java: "apt-get remove openjdk-6-jre" also removes pdftk? wtf? dpkg bug?
desktop: needs updating for Lucid's xfce layout.
postgis: need to sort out 1.4/1.5 mismatch.

gvSIG: currently disabled as no install candidate for Lucid has arrived.

everything after ossim got clobbered by a package dep error (now fixed)
so we'll have to wait for alpha7 for osgearth.sh, spatialite.sh,
beta_and_submenu.sh, etc.

other notes:
* ${foo}/ for quoting spaces in path names doesn't work. use "quotes" instead.
* don't forget to "chmod g+w" when uploading files to the download server.
(except maybe for md5sum lists)
