Re: fw: gfortran transition release goal proposal

My fortran packages are non-free (pgplot5) or contrib (ifeffit). I have not yet had any time to determine if these are going to cause problems. I am sort of worried though because pgplot5 is quite particular.

If you have suggestions, critique, or you are busy but accept NMU'ing
your packages for gfortran transition.. please speak now.

Some of the packages gfortran transition affects are also affected by
the long double transition. This includes atleast the following fortran

lam, atlas3, fftw3, hdf5, mpich1.0, petsc, pdl

Therefor, I think it would make sense to start g77 -> gfortran
transition promptly, to avoid transitioning same packages twice.
