Hi Alex,
some time ago I kindly asked one of the DebGIS members to teach me how to build
DEB packages from the sources in the repository for Ubuntu. I'd like to
dedicate a little of my time mantaining (one of) such packages for Ubuntu. This
would require to envolve the DebianGIS project, and the Ubuntu MOTU (Masters of
the Universe) team too. In my mind the only useful result should be to have
some packages to mantain as a team in Ubuntu Universe, given _the same_ sources
as DebianGIS.

The objective would be that apt-get install postgis always provides users with
the latest version of the software, without the pain of adding repositories and
so on.

If we can merge our efforts and will, the more the better!
