It is missing the NMU 4.13.3withdata-dfsg1-4.1 by Andreas Beckmann and
there are now the first commits done by Steve for insighttoolkit5
version 5.2.1 which was ITPed by Ghislain.
I think we need to discuss whether
1. We want to simply replace insighttoolkit4 (which makes the
usage of the existing repository sensible - but please inject
the NMU changes at least in d/changelog
2. We should start ITK5 in a new repository and maintain both
versions at least for some time in parallel until all packages
that currently use ITK4 are migrated.
In any case people who are interested in ITK should coordinate their
work and talk to each other which I'd like to kindly invite you to
do here on the Debian Med mailing list (any other channel is fine for
