If we move to 12.04 then I would need to package up 1.8.7 myself for Alembic unless it can be updated.  Ubuntu is freezing for Debian syncs in late December.

BTW, I'm an open-source developer myself, a MacPorts maintainer, contribute to svn, scala-migrations, etc, so I don't mean to step on any toes, just wanting to see an Ubuntu release that supports our company.

How can I help, is there anything I can do?

Taking a step back, what is the plan to start the transition to unstable?  Are the new hdf5 packages being planned for wheezy?
