Bug#731403: transition: librasterlite

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: transition

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";

Kind Regards,
