[DebianGIS-dev] Bug#413126: gdal: Please switch to libcfitsio3

Package: gdal
Version: 1.3.2-4
Severity: wishlist


The gdal package is currently using libcfitsio2. This version has been
superceeded by libcfitsio3, and is not maintained upstream anymore. I
would like to see libcfitsio2 removed from Lenny.

Therefore it would be nice if you can switch the gdal package to
libcfitsio3. The version 3 is API (but not ABI) compatible with version
2, so the only thing to change on your side is to change libcfitsio-dev
into libcfitsio3-dev in the build-depends line.
