Rebuilding the latest gpsprune package from Debian for OSGeo-Live is
quite trivial, see for example the git-buildpackage workflow documented
in the Debian GIS policy:


Or just rebuild the source package downloaded via tracker.debian.org
with pdebuild in a cowbuilder chroot with the OSGeo-Live nightly PPA

Updating the package now requires the docs to be reviewed again for
18.6. If the package was updated first the docs needed to be updated
only once.
