All of GLU's interfaces are C, not C++, so "transitioning" libGLU is
ill-advised at best.
What I mean here is that no package should:
a. Have an exclusive dependency on libglu1-xorg
b. Have to wait for libglu1-xorg to enter etch
c. Be trainsitioned because of libglu1-xorg
Replaces: libglu1c2, libglu1, libutahglx1, mesag3 (<< 5.0.0-1),
xlibmesa3 (<< 4.2.1-5), xlibmesa3-glu, xlibmesa-glu
the provides is there in order to allow for other packages to provide
libGLU, which is nice, thank you so much, but broken.
Are you aware of a situation that needs this or are you doing this
"just in case"? I have tried several GLU-using C++ and libraries
compiled with g++ 3.3 with the binary provided by libglu1-xorg and they
are working fine. I have also compiled programs against libglu1-xorg's
libGLU and they run fine with other libGLUs compiled with gcc 3.3.
