The changes currently live in my personal git repository , I have
some more changes  that I need to merge with your recent changes
before I planned to push to git.debian.org.
The maven-repo-helper changes are required to build the new osmosis
package I'm also working on. But I got distracted by the SpatiaLite
transition and the mapnik FTBFS it caused on arm*. The latter is being
addressed by Jérémy now.

Dealing with the OGC licensing was not fun for TinyOWS, but luckily
upstream was very helpful in addressing our concerns. I'm sure PostGIS
upstream is too.

I'll make those changes to my repo too then, and push it all when it's
done. Probably later today or the end of the weekend at the latest.
