I know and I am working on this. Since I don't have access to these
architectures, this is not easy. The RC bug would be simple to fix;
I just makes no sense to upload the new version unless I can get the
FTBS fixed.

Some of the "out-of-date" excuses, however, result from the SONAME
change (libcplcore12 --> libcplcore20), and I don't know hoe to handle

The CPL libraries have just two reverse dependencies: only esorex and
python-cpl depend on libcpl*. Both have new versions ready to upload, so
the new triple

cpl_6.0-2 (libcplcore20 etc.), esorex_3.9.6-1, python-cpl_0.3.6-1

could replace the current "testing" triple

cpl_5.3.1-1 (libcplcore12 etc.), exorex_3.9.0-1, python-cpl_0.3.5.1-1

without any unresolved dependencies left.

DS9 (saods9) is independent of CPL. For saods9, there is just the
package "starlink-ast" not uploaded yet. Since I already asked Sylvestre
Ledru for an upload (he may be on vacation in these weeks), I am not
sure if I should/could ask someone else for the same issue or if this
may make him upset. If you like, you could anyway review the package


and I would appreciate your comments and hints (as well as on the
current saods9 release).

Since I am still a Newbee, I would need a sponsor to do so. Would you
like, and are you already able to sponsor a guest account for me?

Best regards
