Package: gmt
Version: 4.5.2-1

Sorry if this is not going to the right person. I am the developer of gmt 
[].  All GMT development is focused on version 5 which we 
hope to release this summer.  In the meantime, the GMT 4.5.x series is updated 
once in a while to correct reported bugs in a package that saw feature freeze 
years ago.  Thus the latest 4.5.9 is much more stable than 4.5.8 which is more 
stable than 4.5.7 etc, etc.  The fact that Debian (stable) is distributing 
4.5.2 from 2010 is causing your users much grief as bugs we fixed 2-3 years ago 
is still in your "stable" distribution.  Those who use Debian (unstable) are 
better off (with 4.5.7) but even this is close to 2 years old now.

Perhaps this is semantics but it is very strange that a product labelled stable 
has a much buggier release than one labelled unstable, and neither has the most 
bug-free version of gmt, which is gmt 4.5.9. And when we release 4.5.10 later 
this spring it will be IT that is the most stable.

It is up to you to deal with this - at least now you know.
