Due to the current status of testing I think I could move the new style
hdf4 into sid and wait for testing promotion. I was waiting to have a few
in testing (-> bpo) before moving on, but at this stage it seems
we will not have the whole toolchain in testing any time soon.
My own schedule was having both HDF4/5 updated in experimental along with gdal
(which fixes a lot of issues) then move all into testing. But this is currently
an optimistic idea, we have simply too many migrations in sid...
So in the immediate time, I'm going to promote hdf4 in sid, then fix gdal 1.5
series and complete the current plan of support for hdf5. That's the tentative
plan, but I still need to re-check current testing global status and blockers.
