In the context of Solus, what is this needed for? Any specific usecase?

I am developing with Django. For some projects postgis is used for geographic data. without this package the website will not work. We use it to calculating distances between a project (that is how it is called on the website) and the user to only show project within a certain radius and to show the user how far away the project is. This could be possible in other ways but that will make the query a lot slower since this is done in a request cycle.

Given nobody has stepped up in the month since this has been accepted for inclusion to provide a patch and become the maintainer, marking as WONTFIX.

I'll try to build a PostGIS package, since I need it myself. Will update.
