Hi, I'd like to contribute towards a solution for this. I'm forwarding to debian-devel to get some others' ideas.

I'm prepared to do so, but I'd first like to get agreement that netcdf is where the problem lies. Netcdf maintainers, please chime in! On Wed, Feb 01, 2012 at 05:44:49PM +0100, Francesco P.

Francesco, please clarify: are you speaking of the hdf5 upstream or the netcdf upstream? (Both?) What problem are you trying to solve with that: co-installable -dev packages or just coinstallable lib packages? > Unfortunately they were still not available for that at the time of > my last poking.

I think we can no longer live in the status quo (see all the blockers of #631019), so something has to give. Even if it is painful, perhaps Debian could pioneer something and pass patches back to upstream? Thoughts? -Steve
