Re: lesstif2 to motif transition
I think the testing went very well. As we suspected, most packages only required changing the build-depends on lesstif2-dev to libmotif-dev. There were a few that required the addition of libxt-dev and one or two that required libxext-dev and libxp-dev (although we should try to remove that dependency).
Cernlib depends on libpacklib-lesstif1-dev and libpawlib-lesstif3-dev from paw and pcb depends on its own pcb-lesstif, these packages should probably be renamed.
Do -dev packages normally get transitional packages? I can't think of a situation where that would be useful.
Ideally we need all of the packages that depend on lesstif2 to be rebuilt against libmotif. When a user upgrades they will then get libmotif which conflicts with lesstif2 and it will be removed.
If a user was developing with lesstif2-dev it would be removed due to the conflict above, but they would not have been able to continue building against libmotif-dev without making changes anyway.
