[Sync request] Please sync lyx 2.0.0~rc1-1 from Debian Unstable

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lyx

I suggest syncing the first RC because now Natty ships with beta (which is just unusable as to me - it fails to work with my documents created in 1.6.9).

Debian changelog:

lyx (2.0.0~rc1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   [ Per Olofsson ]
   * Use dh_python2 instead of dh_pysupport.
   * Use debhelper sequence 'tex'.

   [ Rene Engelhard ]
   * Add a symlink so that LyX can access the mythes thesaurus files.
   * Build-depend on libmythes-dev.

   [ Sven Hoexter ]
   * New upstream release
   * Stop using defoma: Drop build-dep and dependency for ttf-lyx, remove
     dh_installdefoma from rules and subsequently no longer override_dh_install.
   * Add ttf-lyx.preinst to call dpkg-maintscript-helper rm_conffile
     to remove the old defoma hints file.
   * Build --without-included-mythes (Closes: #612327)
     Kudos to Rene Engelhard and Georg Baum for implementing it right away.
   * Refresh debian/patches/prefer-xdg-open.

Difference is *huge*, but that mainly seems to be refreshed po files. Upstream changelog is hard to find, but the site does indicate it's bug fixes only.

Moving from beta4 -> rc1 for release sounds like a good idea.

lyx 2.0.0~rc1-1 builds on amd64. Sync request ACK'd.

Hey Dave, Dmitry. Before syncing it, as it still adds a lot of feature, I'd be in favor to ask for a FFe before syncing. Subscribing the release team.

Agreed, we should aim to ship the final release in natty. Mostly bug fixes, approved.
