Description : GRIB decoding/encoding software library
The ECMWF GRIB API is an application program interface accessible from
C and FORTRAN programs developed for encoding and decoding WMO FM-92
GRIB edition 1 and edition 2 messages.
ECMWF is the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts.
I have already done most of the packaging at:
I have one thing of which I am unsure: upstream does not yet build
shared libraries, but the interface is rather stable and I patch the
sources so that the Debian package does provide them. The issue is
about the libtool versioning: at the moment I picked 0:0:0 so that
anything upstream may choose in the future will likely be higher;
however, are there better ways to address this?
Other issues left to solve are nothing more than maybe writing a manpage
or two with help2man.
