No need to apologize.
I got an email from Howard Butler, the libLAS upstream, today about the
libLAS 1.8 release. And he asked if there was anything Debian might need
so he can do a 1.8.1 release before the freeze.
I didn't expect libLAS 1.8 until the end of August, so still I think we
did the right thing by backporting the GDAL 1.11.0 support.
We can transition GDAL and libLAS separately. The GDAL transition only
needs binNMUs now which will please the Release Team.
libLAS 1.8 will also need a (mini) transition, pktools which will need a
binNMU or maybe even a source upload if a binNMU won't suffice.
