Just the minor incantations to do it the proper debian/ubuntu way. I've
attempted to do so, which may be may 1st successful upload to launchpad.
If it works right I'll see about having gpsprune copied over to
ubuntugis. In the future, if you want to release new versions and not
have to wait for them to get into the next release of ubuntu we can work
towards packaging for ubuntugis more regularly. I think I got it figured
out for your package and might be able to show you how.
