Bug#648628: transition: gpsd
Hi Release Team,
gpsd's service library libgps got a bunch of API and ABI changes, so it
needs a transition from libgps19 to libgps20.
Currently there are only 4 packages left in unstable which do not build
against the new API:
I'm able to patch geoclue and obdgpslogger quickly if necessary.
For kde* the qt/kde people and I agreed that they will - depending on
the time of the gpsd transition - either upload fixed packages to
unstable after the new gpsd version is available (so we don't need to
binNMU them again) or if they are ready to upload kde 4.7/kdeedu 4.7 at
the time the gpsd transition happens, both transitions could run in
So please let me know when you'd like me to upload gpsd to unstable.
Thanks and cheers,
