Markus and possibly others

please provide the correct required tags to upstream/debian branches at every
new release. I just had to add a couple of them onto the postgis repo.
About libgdal-dev versus libgdal1-dev, the proper dependency is libgdal-dev,
the old libgdal1-dev should be considered only for back-compatibility.
In this specific case I would use something like

libgdal-dev | libgdal1-dev

until the old releases still will be considered for backports. 

Ratio: we will neve provide multiple versions of gdal development packages,
so using a versioned name is pointless and inconsistent.
