Bug#596733: unblock: ncbi-tools6/6.1.20100808-1 (as -2)

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock


ncbi-tools6 recently had its first upstream release in a year, issued
a few days before your latest announcement.  (As the version number
indicates, the sources themselves are somewhat older; however, the
public release thereof didn't occur until August 27.)  Here's the
changelog block:

ncbi-tools6 (6.1.20100808-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * New upstream release; the upgrade to BLAST 2.2.24 (from 2.2.21) should
    address a formatdb regression.  (LP: #586219.)
  * Uploading to experimental because squeeze is frozen.
  * debian/rules
    - Clean up compilation settings; in particular, use dpkg-buildflags rather
      than relying on dpkg-buildpackage to have set CFLAGS appropriately.
    - (clean): restore expected empty directories if necessary,
      for compatibility with VCSes (notably git) that don't track them.
    - (install-indep-stamp): adapt to new ncbilogo.ico contents.
    - (VIB): add asndisc, as upstream takes care to publish binaries thereof.
  * debian/ncbi-tools6.install: likewise add asndisc.
  * (debian/).gitignore: Ignore content generated during build.
  * debian/lib{ncbi6,vibrant6a}.symbols: update for latest release.
  * make/makenet.unx: don't link asndisc against extraneous libraries.
  * doc/man/*.1: update for latest release.
  * doc/man/asndisc.1: throw together a man page for asndisc.
  * doc/man/cleanasn.1: fix SEE ALSO formatting.
  * debian/control:
    - bump dpkg-dev build-dep to >= 1.15.7 for dpkg-buildflags.
    - Standards-Version: 3.9.1 (already compliant).
    - note switch to git-mediated Debian-Med team maintenance.

In particular, please note that this upload fixes a nasty regression
reported in Launchpad:


There's no corresponding Debian bug report at present, but I can
formally issue one if you'd like. ;-)

At any rate, I uploaded my packages of the new release to experimental
out of respect for the freeze, but would greatly appreciate it if you
could please authorize a reupload to unstable with the intent of
making it into squeeze.  I concede that the diff


is on the large side; however, the impact on reverse dependencies
should be negligible, as most of the changed interfaces are only used
internally.  (Also, leaving out changes to spacing and fully generated
files helps a fair bit; the result is still larger than I care to
attach :-/, but I've posted a copy at


that you're welcome to review as you see fit.)

Per reportbug, I'm including the relevant unblock directive for your

unblock ncbi-tools6/6.1.20100808-2

Thanks in advance for considering this request; please let me know if
you have any questions or concerns.
