Package: cura
Version: 5.0.0-1
Severity: wishlist

This is a placeholder bug to track activity towards packaging Cura 5.1 and
later versions.

With Cura 5.1, upstream has switched to a new build and dependency management
system that is based on Conan[1], which is not yet packaged for Debian. CMake
is still used, and there are also some requirements on other build tools, such
as Ninja[2]. Ninja is available in Debian as "ninja-build".

The work done by the Alpine package maintainer may serve as a starting point:

However, it would be better if we didn't have to maintain a large set of
compatibility patches to make building Cura possible again.

Be aware that upstream states there may still be changes to the build system
