Bug#714740: [xmakemol] please transition from lesstif2 to motif

Source: xmakemol
User: openmotif@packages.debian.org
Usertags: lesstif2motif
Version: 5.16-6
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 have no dependent packages and to only depend on glw which also needs to be transitioned.

We have checked for ABI changes in libglw 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
