Hi Ivan,

The current situation with GDAL in Debian is that 1.10.1+dfsg-2 is in


And the transition is almost complete, as can be seen in the
transition tracker:


The remaining packages are waiting for the new openscenegraph 3.2.1
package in unstable before they can be rebuild:


The osmium package is not maintained by the Debian GIS team and may
need an NMU to rebuild with the new GDAL.

As Johan van de Wauw mentioned, the GDAL 1.10.1+dfsg-2 package has
been synced from Debian into Ubuntu.

An outstanding issue with the GDAL 1.10.1 package in Debian is that we
still need to update the symbols files.

The README.source states that this process involved "a bit of vi/sed
magics", which I didn't use but a quick and dirty Perl script.

So I've asked Francesco to review my changes first. They live in my
person git clone for the moment:


I should probably rerun the script on the 1.10.1+dfsg-2 packages to
see if the changes remained stable between -1 and -2.

Kind Regards,


Sebastiaan, thanks a lot for clarification and your work.
