Getting Sage 4.0.x into Debian experimental
This is a ToDo list to sort out some issues to get Sage 4.0.x into Debian experimental since currently the rather outdated Sage 3.0.5 is the only version of Sage available via Debian's system. For more info see the thread at https://groups.google.com/group/sage-devel/browse_thread/thread/f56d4635114d4fe5/a21b5ce968dd9707
At the moment the timetable suggests that all spkgs should be synced in time for Sage 4.0.2 - see http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/milestone/sage-4.0.2 for details.
Needs to be done
- numpy to 1.3
- scipy to 0.7 (maybe 0.7.1 if it is out by then)
- NTL to 5.5 (maybe 5.5.1 might be out soon due to buglet in gmp 4.3.0 - does not affect Sage, might affect Debian)
- IML to 1.0.3
- givaro to 3.2.13
- matplotlib (I know they have been talking about doing a release and I believe they have a bugfix for the rare (libpng is size zero issue, but I am unclear when they will release)
- jqueryui to 1.7.1 (currently not in Debian at all, so using version shipped with Sage is undesirable but OK for now)
Patches needing to be merged upstream
