Package: src:h5utils
Version: 1.12.1-1
Severity: important

The current version of h5utils build-depends on octave3.2-headers.  This
later package will be removed from unstable once the transition to the
new version of octave (currently 3.6.1) will be completed (see the wiki

Notice that this is a versioned path.  This means that the script will
not be in the Octave path if the octave package is upgraded upstream

appropriate for plugins.

This path is obtained by the following code in

    OCT_INSTALL_DIR=`octave-config --oct-site-dir
Plugins should be installed in one of the following paths (the example
below is shown is for the i386 architeture):

    $ octave-config --print LOCALOCTFILEDIR
    $ octave-config --print LOCALAPIOCTFILEDIR
Note that the last one has the API number, which may be (or not) a good
