Hello folks,

Xerces-C 3.1 was recently uploaded, and Xerces-C changes its namespace
with each release.  This means that libraries built against 3.0 cannot
be mixed with libraries built with 3.1.  I uncovered this when preparing
to upload a new xmltooling package built against 3.1, which resulted in
missing symbols from xml-security-c since it was built against 3.0.

Could you rebuild xml-security-c against Xerces-C 3.1?  I'll then be
uploading new versions of all of the packages that depend on xml-security-c
(namely the Shibboleth stack), since they all have new upstream releases

nmu xml-security-c_1.5.1-2 . ALL . -m "Rebuild against Xerces-C 3.1."
