Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
getfem++ (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

= Availability =
 * Package is in Universe.

= Rationale =
 * libgmm++-dev which is from getfem++ is a build dependency of KOffice which is in main

= Security =
 * No security issues ever recorded in CVE, Secunia, or Ubuntu

= Quality Assurance =
 * No major issues reported in Debian, Ubuntu, or upstream
 * Package is well maintained in Debian and Ubuntu
 * Does not deal with hardware that is unsupported

= UI Standards =
 * N/A

= Dependencies =
 * All dependencies in main

= Standards Compliance =
 * OK

= Maintenance =
 * Simple package well maintained

= Background Information =
The Getfem++ project focuses on the development of a generic and efficient C++ library for finite element methods. The goal is to provide a library allowing the computation of any elementary matrix (even for mixed finite element methods) on the largest class of methods and elements, and for arbitrary dimension (i.e. not only 2D and 3D problems).

It offers a complete separation between integration methods (exact or approximated), geometric transformations (linear or not) and finite element methods of arbitrary degrees. It can really relieve a more integrated finite element code of technical difficulties of elementary computations.

I've moved this to main to not miss the feature freeze

we need ABI/API tracking facilities in this package, aka .symbols

also please ensure that the tests are run during build (if not already)

please check whether you want this MIR to happen in maverick still
 * if you don't want it to be considered, simply set the status to "Invalid"
 * if you still want to see this happening, you don't need to do anything besides working on getting the concerns fixed. Once that happened, remember to set the status back to "New" again.

promoted to main, still awaiting approval

Note that libgmm-dev is already in main from a different source package

approved. fix released.

closer inspection reveals this has some extra build and install depends which also need MIRs. To keep things simple I'll go back to using the stand alone gmm library which is all that's needed for koffice and kdeedu.
