Package: libhdf5-dev
Version: 1.8.12+docs-1.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

some time ago there was a package libhdf5-serial-dev that I could use to build a serial version of package meep. Nowadays this package was replaced by libhdf5-dev and the description still says:
 This package contains development files for serial platforms.

Unfortunately there are these lines in /usr/include/H5pubconf.h
  /* Define if we have parallel support */
  #define H5_HAVE_PARALLEL 1
which result in an error in /usr/include/H5public.h
  #   define MPICH_SKIP_MPICXX 1
  #   define OMPI_SKIP_MPICXX 1
  #   include <mpi.h>
  #ifndef MPI_FILE_NULL           /*MPIO may be defined in mpi.h already */
  #   include <mpio.h>
as there is no mpi.h available in a serial environment.

So is this a bug or a feature and serial versions are no longer supported?

Starting with version 1.8.13 in unstable, and about to transition into
testing, the three flavors of libhdf5 are now co-installable and
libhdf5-serial-dev actually depends on libhdf5-dev which isn't provided
by any of the libhdf5-*mpi*-dev packages anymore.
