Dear Francesco and Bas, I was trying to read all possible information
(bug reports, debian/changelog, mailing list) about the libgdal1h
issue and transition, but still, it is not clear for me what the
current state is and what it needs to be done to complete this task.

Please, could you summarize current situation ? Is it possible that
GDAL 10 packaging will be fully completed soon enough to get to Ubuntu
14.04 LTS in best shape ?

Thanks a lot for your work.
