Thanks for the quick response.
It doesn't *just* contain the fixes which were previously backported
though, there are code changes included which were not present in
0.29.3-3. From a quick look, I'm not immediately convinced that those
code changes are RC; the moving of the patches in to the upstream code
The bigger issue is that because neon27 calls dh_makeshlibs with -V, the
shlibs are bumped with every upload even if it's not necessary.
Checking the diff between 0.29.3-3 and 0.29.5-1, none of the changes
look like they warrant a shlib bump. For a leaf package this isn't an
issue, but for a library it can be and in this case is about to become
one - subversion needs to be updated in unstable but will then be unable
to migrate as it will depend on a neon27 package newer than the version
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on where we go from here.
