Package: netcdf
Version: 4.2.1+
Severity: normal

I maintain the ExodusII package, which has in its README:

The exodus library uses the netcdf library for low-level data

Exodus requires NetCDF version or later.

The netcdf library must be modified slightly in order to handle the
exodus datamodel. The specific changes are:

1. include/netcdf.h -- Modify the following defines:

#define NC_MAX_DIMS     65536    /* max dimensions per file */
#define NC_MAX_VARS     524288   /* max variables per file */
#define NC_MAX_VAR_DIMS 8        /* max per variable dimensions */

If these changes are not made, the exodus library will still function
for "normal" size models, but it will fail for "large" models. The
error message from exodus/netcdf should be somewhat clear when this
