Bug#689572: nmu: packages linked against libhdf5-7 << 1.8.8-7.1
Usertags: binnmu

There're several packages currently in Debian testing having a
versioned dependency on the semi-virtual libhdf5-7 package
(apparently as the result of being built prior to Source: hdf5
1.8.8-7.1 propagating to testing on 2012-02-23.)

Consequently, these packages cannot be installed along with any
of the other libraries providing libhdf5-7 (check, e. g., [1].)
I'm therefore suggesting re-building these packages against the
now-current libhdf5-7, with binNMU's as specified below.


nmu libcgns_3.1.3.4-1 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'
nmu nexus_4.2.1-svn1614-1 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'
nmu r-cran-hdf5_1.6.10-1 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'
nmu tessa_0.3.1-6 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'
nmu udav_0.7.1.2-3 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'

The hdf-eos5_5.1.14+dfsg.1-1 currently in Debian unstable fixes
the issue (as well as a few others), but unless it's unblocked
(and enters Debian testing), it has to be re-built just as well:

nmu hdf-eos5_5.1.13.dfsg.1-3 . ALL . -m 'Rebuilt against libhdf5-7 >= 1.8.8-7.1'


JFTR, the respective Source: hdf5 Debian changelog [2] entry is:

--cut: --
hdf5 (1.8.8-7.1) unstable; urgency=low

* Non-maintainer upload.
* Stop building the c++ libraries, nothing uses them. And don't version the
libhdf5-7 symbols file, so the dependency can also be satisfied by the mpi
packages' Provides.
* Use DEB_HOST_ARCH instead of DEB_BUILD_ARCH in debian/rules.
* Don't require root for debian/rules clean.

The PTS entries for the packages affected are as follows.
• [2012-02-24] hdf-eos5 5.1.13.dfsg.1-3 MIGRATED to testing
• [2012-01-24] Accepted in unstable (low) (Sylvestre
• [2011-07-31] Accepted 4.2.1-svn1614-1 in unstable (low) (Tobias
Stefan Richter)

(Although nexus was re-built once as 4.2.1-svn1614-1+b1, it was
on 2012-01-26, thus before hdf5_1.8.8-7.1, and still bearing a
possibly unwarranted versioned dependency on libhdf5-7.)
• [2012-01-18] Accepted 1.6.10-1 in unstable (low) (Dirk
• [2012-02-20] Accepted 0.3.1-6 in unstable (low) (Josselin Mouette)
• [2012-01-25] Accepted in unstable (low) (Salvatore
