Bug#714737: [glw] please transition from lesstif2 to motif

Source: glw
User: openmotif@packages.debian.org
Usertags: lesstif2motif
Version: 8.0.0-1
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: openmotif@packages.debian.org

Hi Maintainer

The lesstif2 package on which your package depends or build-depends is destined to be removed from the archive before the release of Jessie. More information can be found in the Debian wiki [1].

Please update your package to build against the motif package instead. In most cases this can be done by simply replacing the build-depends on lesstif2-dev with libmotif-dev, however please do verify proper behaviour before uploading.

Your package appears to not depend on any other lesstif2-dependent packages and its only dependent packages are arb, inventor and xmakemol.

We have checked for ABI changes using icheck which reported no differences. We have also run xmakemol-gl compiled with lesstif2 together with libglw compiled with motif, as well as xmakemol-gl compiled with motif together with libglw compiled with lesstif2 and did not encounter any problems.

Paul and Graham
