scotch and libmesh


I am writing to request that scotch 5.0.6-1 (uploaded 7/21) and libmesh
0.6.2-2 (uploaded 7/25) be included in the Lenny release.  Scotch is in
the NEW queue because this release added shared libraries.  The libmesh
release closes a lot of bugs, and uses the scotch shared libraries, so
it is in Dep-Wait state waiting for the new scotch package.

I have been using the scotch/libmesh combination extensively, and the
quality is very high.  The shared scotch libs cut the size of binaries
quite a bit, and libmesh has multiple usability enhancements, including
a link to VTK 5 which makes it easier to drop GMV (non-free and not in
Debian) as a visualization engine.

Please let me know if you need any additional information, and please CC
me in any replies.
