Dear maintainer you are receiving this mail as a mantainer of one or more packages related to the `geos' library (i.e. having libgeos-dev as a build-dep).
With next 3.3.1+ version, I'm going to split appropriately the Geos C and C++ interfaces as explained in #643658. Most programs require tipically linking the official stable C interface, so libgeos-dev from now on will provide *only* the libgeos_c dev stuff and headers. You will need to build-dep on the libgeos++-dev package if your program *explicitly* use the C++ interface, instead. That will allow me to avoid calling at every new geos release a bin-NMU batch run for ALL r-builddeps, because in the 90% of cases new releases hide in the unstable C++ library all details of changes. Your program in most cases simply does not use the OO interface, as shown in http://trac.osgeo.org/geos/wiki/Applications For instance, osm2pgsql is expected to FTBS and should be the only package strictly depending on the C++ interface, ATM. PS: CCing release team for information about next changes. -- Francesco P.
