Source: mapnik
Version: 3.0.0~rc3+ds-1
Severity: serious


mapnik no longer builds the python bindings, but tilelite still depends on
those. Something needs to be done here so that mapnik can be in a releasable
state: either the bindings are brought back (possibly from a different
source package) or codelite needs to be fixed / removed.

With the changes in mapnik (3.0.0+ds-2) and a patch for the boost
libraries the new python-mapnik package builds successfully.

It was accepted into unstable yesterday, which should resolve this issue.

I've also updated the python-mapnik dependency in tilelite to no longer
use the python-mapnik2 transitional package.
