Fwd: Bug#328199: pytables: rebuild required for hdf5 migration
The maintainer of the pytables package needs a sponsor to help with the
upload of a version against the current hdf5 libraries. I'm not yet a
Debian developer; could someone else help out?

I'm the maintainer of the package, but I'm not a developer. Normally,
I package pytables and who used to be my sponsor (Daniel Bungert)
upload it to the Debian repository.
However, Daniel seems to be very busy lately (in fact, he said me that
he was about to leave his developer position at debian) and despite
I'd like to become a Debian developer, I don't like bureaucracy ;). So
I'm afraid that my ideal position would be remaining a maintainer and
find another sponsor. Another solution would be to find a developer
wanting to take in charge of the package.
Meanwhile, updated versions of pytables for Debian are accessible at:
In addition, I'm going to subscribe the mentors.debian.net service in
order to make the package more broadly accessible.
