Bug#705609: unblock: debian-science/1.0

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

Please unblock package debian-science

As announced in [1] I now uploaded debian-science metapackages targeting
at Wheezy.  The changes in the debian-science package are to a large
extend auto generated by blends-dev and the full debdiff (attached
debian-science_0.16-1.0.debdiff.gz) is a bit hard to read because the
files in tasks/ are serving at the same time used as documentation for
the Debian Science web sentinel[2].  There is no reasonable way to
maintain this in a separate source so the diff is larger than you would
usually accept these days.  However, this was explained in [1] and was
done this way in the last releases as well (and recently for other

To enable you concentrating on the *relevant* changes which are caused
due to changes in the package pool (some packages became removed and
some became accepted since the last generation of the metapackages) I
have split of the parts of the debdiff which are more easy to inspect to
see what relevant changes in the dependencies have actually happended.
Please feel free to inspect:

  diff -Nru debian-science-0.16/debian-science-tasks.desc debian-science-1.0/debian-science-tasks.desc
  --- debian-science-0.16/debian-science-tasks.desc       2012-04-17 11:11:32.000000000 +0200
  +++ debian-science-1.0/debian-science-tasks.desc        2013-04-15 12:00:00.000000000 +0200
This shows in the most simple way what recommends were added / removed

  diff -Nru debian-science-0.16/debian/changelog debian-science-1.0/debian/changelog
  --- debian-science-0.16/debian/changelog        2012-04-17 11:11:11.000000000 +0200
  +++ debian-science-1.0/debian/changelog 2013-04-15 10:40:41.000000000 +0200
  diff -Nru debian-science-0.16/debian/control debian-science-1.0/debian/control
  --- debian-science-0.16/debian/control  2012-04-17 11:11:35.000000000 +0200
  +++ debian-science-1.0/debian/control   2013-04-15 12:00:04.000000000 +0200
This extract from debdiff shows the changes inside debian/.

    This was created using
      wdiff debian-science-0.16/debian/control debian-science-1.0/debian/control > debian-science_control_0.16-1.0.wdiff
    and is a better way to see the differences in the list of Recommends / Suggests
    inside the metapackages than a plain diff.

Feel free to ask for any further information if needed.

Kind regards and thanks for working on the Wheezy release
