Hi Jorge,
I'd like to work with the gvsig community to work out a solution to 
ensure gvSIG works with PostGIS 2 on our next OSGeo-Live.

These are 2 high profile projects, and indicates a lack of OSGeo 
maturity if we can't demonstrate them working together.

What are our options for getting this fixed?
