Gilles Filippini was in a hurry to move the HDF5 transition along and
uploaded a NMU of pktools that only included his HDF5 patch that you
commited to git.

I've asked him to the cancel the NMU because the change is already in
git but just not uploaded yet. He canceled the upload, so we can further
get pktools in shape before a team upload (instead of an NMU).

The FTBFS on arm* seems to be the same as reported in #588887 for
libfann, I haven't pinpointed the fix yet though.

I've addressed some of the lintian issues, but I'm not looking forward
to fixing all the lintian issues. Especially writing the many man pages
and overhauling the libraries to use symbols files and separate packages
for each library.

What was on your TODO list for pktools?

I don't think we should wait much longer to upload the recent changes.

Kind Regards,
