Bug#731403: transition: librasterlite
Dear Release Team,
For the Debian GIS team I've requested a transition slot for the
SpatiaLite transition, it includes an update of librasterlite
requiring its own transition.
The upgrade from librasterlite 1.1~svn11 to 1.1g involves a SONAME bump
from librasterlite.so.1 to librasterlite.so.2. And affects the following
source packages in unstable:
1) mapnik (build OK)
2) spatialite-gui (build OK)
Only a BinNMU is required for mapnik. The spatialite-gui package in
experimental can be copied to unstable.
The updated spatialite-gui package requires the libgaiagraphics and
spatialite packages available in experimental. The 1.2.1 version of
spatialite-gui in unstable depends on librasterlite, but the new 1.7.1
version no longer links to librasterlite.
The librasterlite transition goes hand in hand with the spatialite
transition (#731402). The new librasterlite package will build with the
spatialite version in unstable, but it should be built with the new
spatialite version also used by spatialite-gui and spatialite-tools.
For more information about the librasterlite and spatialite transitions,
see the thread on debian-gis@ starting at:
For the librasterlite transition the following Ben file is suggested:
title = "librasterlite2";
is_affected = .build-depends ~ "librasterlite-dev";
is_good = .depends ~ "librasterlite2";
is_bad = .depends ~ "librasterlite1";
