I went ahead and uploaded -10 yesterday.  I forgot that the -doc binary
package is new, so this has to go through the NEW queue.

Also, alioth now has reorganized binaries along the lines proposed in
this bug, I'm marking it pending.  It has no file conflicts between the
packages, and I think I added enough Conflicts to ensure a smooth
upgrade from -10 to -11.  And it splits documentation into salome-doc
and a new salome-dev-doc directory, though it's so large I'm still
reluctant to make it a separate package at least for now.

Before a -11 upload, I'd like to do the following:
      * Wait for -10 to get into testing, or to have new RC bugs which
        we fix in -11;
      * Add a reconfigure target as in Denis' tree;
      * (Merge something else from Denis' tree that I don't remember
        right now;)
      * Consider moving at least the LIGHT and PYLIGHT modules, if not
        all of the "examples" modules, into the -extras package, since
        it is very small right now;
      * Move the files from the salome-doc directory in non-salome-doc
        packages into the salome-doc package (see debian/rules).

Can you also test the -10 packages to see if there are any issues with
the transition to Python 2.6?

I'm going to need to suspend development for at least a week, though I
will reply to emails.  I hope you are enjoying vacation, and look
forward to working with you this Fall -- and working more closely with
upstream!  (And finally getting NETGENPLUGIN to work, which is much of
my motivation for working on this...)
