Thanks for the report and helping make ubuntu better.

mayavi is still in unstable and not in lucid, so the backport may be difficult this close to lucid release (it would need to be included in lucid, and it is not yet)

Changed in mayavi2 (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Triaged

(correction mayavi2 version 3.3.1 is still in debian unstable) To get a Karmic backport, the package must be in Lucid (which it is not and might not be included before Lucid's release).

I realize that I hadn't worded my bug report properly: I meant 'please
sync' and not 'please backport'. I think that it is more than reasonnable
given limited manpower not to try and port 3.3.1 in Karmic. It would be
great to have it in Lucid, though.

Best,
