Help would be most welcome!

Packaging is not the issue, however. I think I can do that over the
weekend. The real issue is whether it can be uploaded this close to a
freeze; for example, does it break any existing reverse dependencies?
c.f. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2008/03/msg00930.html

So, assuming I can produce the packages, what would help is to have
volunteers to test build all the things that build-depend on boost.

If interested, please email.

Thanks,
-Steve

Hmm. I see.

That's what I was afraid of ;)

Well, if I'm doing this right, dpkg-awk tells me that it's only 65
packages that directly Build-Depend on boost, about 7% of which I
actually use, and several more that look like they'd be pretty easy to
run-test.

There are a few packages in the list that are obviously libraries, but
none of those seem to have any reverse-dependencies.

If you guys can get some sort of boost-1.35 package together, I can
see building and run-testing about a dozen of those 65 packages over
the course of a week. That still leaves ~50 packages, though--I'll
have to give a longer look and see what I can do about the rest.

I don't think that I can run-test fslview--I'm not sure how many other
packages there are in the list like that.

How close /are/ we to a freeze?

IMHO it would merit an upload to experimental ASAP to make the
rdepends check possible, and whether to make a separate package for
1.35.0 depends on the result.
