Sure, I would like to do that.  And thank you for bringing it to our attention.

I was planning to at some point (sooner rather than later) bring
gr-osmosdr into [community] for better rtl-sdr support.  All of those
listed deps are required by gr-osmosdr directly.  GQRX could basically
get in "for free" after gr-osmosdr is packaged.

My plan is to first package gr-osmosdr as an optdep for Gnu Radio.
Then I can look at GQRX, but I don't see any problems on the horizon.
