Bug#674750: transition: libnunit2.6

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

We would really like to update the unit testing library in Wheezy from version
2.5.x to the stable 2.6 release. Unfortunately this requires a small ABI break.
One major factor for us in requesting the release is that libnunit2.5's more
complex reverse dependencies were originally written for NUnit 2.4, then
patched downstream to the 2.5 version - NUnit 2.6 has better support upstream,
and means we can move away from questionably reliable downstream patches.

Four packages are affected by this transition request:

taoframework - Arch:all, needs a simple rebuild
gnome-do - Arch:any, needs a simple rebuild
nant - Arch:all, needs an upstream version update (already in Experimental)
monodevelop - Arch:all, needs an upstream version update (already in

Ben parameters as follows:

Affected: .build-depends ~ /libnunit-cil-dev/
Good: .depends ~ /libnunit2.6-cil/
Bad: .depends ~ /libnunit2.5-cil/
