Hi Thomas,

don't know what I have started......
I was just trying to report on a few issues I encountered while doing some tests 
with Grass (building 6.4 through ABS and Grass-svn through AUR).
Now I am involved in a whole discussion on orphans, deadlines, responsabilities, 
assignments etc...

Well just get back on the issue:
	* I managed to build grass 6.4.0-6 with your suggestion with devtools and 
'extra-x86_64'. It gives me a packeage. Still don't understand why it does not 
fonction with the standards ABS-way;
	* It's clear why grass-svn in AUR is not working since it is not yet adjusted 
to the python 2.x and python 3.1 environment. I tried to adjust the PKGBUILD for 
grass-svn with the specific python lines from the PKGBUILD for grass 6.4 that 
worked (see above). I have attached this PKGBUILD to this message. Trying this 
in the clean chroot environment gives me an error in line 36 (does 
not recognize the svn command in the chroot env.)
Well that's it. Wanted to post this info on the grass-svn aur page. But 
apperantly I don't have an account to post on aur pages. Sorry if I have started 
any annoying business, just wanted to be helpful with my experiences and trying 
to get stable GIS application under this wonderful distro

This is more of a assigning responsibility to a package sort of thing,
as I said, I would rather have it be in aur and have a maintainer then
be in community and be an orphan.
