at about Christmas the window for package upgrades will close and thus
we should not only fix those bugs in existing packages but tackle
important version upgrades as well to deliver the greatest software
collection in Stretch. I'll file a series of "New version available"
bugs here and will CC the list to enable everybody picking from the
list. I'll also give comments whether its an easy upgrade (for
beginners!) or whether its a hard one.
The sra-sdk is really a hard one since upstream is crafting its own hand
made build system which always creates hazzle. Its specifically
important because while I managed to upgrade the Build-Depends ncbi-vdb
this package is in its old version and it should version-match ncbi-vdb.
I've just commited the upstream tarball to Git and tried to adapt my
patches but the result does not build. Any help is welcome.
