Sure, it could.  I took the opportunity to do some fixes and fix Bug#473438,
which were pending in SVN.  Have you announced the binNMus somewhere?  I
probably missed the announcement.

At any rate, we are still waiting for the bloody hdf5 on some architectures.
I proposed a patch [1] to fix the openmpi dependency problem and I am
waiting for the reaction of the maintainers.  If this takes too long, we
should consider NMUing.

After that, we should address the FTBFS problems with petsc.
