Hi Ian,

Thanks for looking into this issue. Indeed the HDF5 transition has made
quite a few RCs pop the last few days.

Please drop the deferred and let me prepare a conventional update with your
changes in, plus some cleaning of the packaging. Can I ping you back for
sponsorship when I am done?

The long-term solution would be to request a new release upstream which is
HDF5 1.10 compatible. They also recently introduced PyPy support, which I
know quite a few people are interested in.

Okay, I cancelled it. I might be able to offer sponsorship, but can't
promise a lot of time - just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

(In the event that this drags along and somebody else ends up here, the
previous patch should be good to re-upload.)


I have submitted the following update:


which includes the cherry-picked commit you proposed, plus some bookkeeping of the packaging files.

It has been successfully tested on debomatic here:


Meanwhile, I have requested upstream to consider a new release.

Let me know if you have time to push this update, otherwise I can seek sponsorship within my team.
