Re: [DebianGIS] Possibly hijacking netcdf

I told someone to go ahead feel free to take it over. I don't remember who. I clearly don't have the time to do a proper job of this. I don't even use netcdf anymore, so I don't really have much motivation to package it.

I did start packing the newest version, but I didn't make any real progress. I had a good reason until the dependencies for netcdf 4 were in debian.

The responsible thing for me to do at this point is give the package up to another interested party, so please feel free to take it over.

Hi folks

after at least other 2 messages sent without answer in the past year and half
and the latest below (with the same result at this moment), I'm going to hijack
the netcdf package in order to move forward with version 4.
If someone had objections about, please talk now or never :)

are you still motivated in maintaining netcdf in Debian? Your last update
is quite dated and is has been already NMUed a couple of times. If not,
we at DebianGis could properly migrate to current version 4 the current
version and taking care of migration for squeeze.
