Hi Chris,
sorry, I missed your previous request.

To download , better in this way

wget -r -np -nH --cut-dirs=4 

so we can copy and download in one shot.

It builds and package fine on 32bit and 64bit,
but there is no test check.
I assume you already tested it for your own correct ?

If so GTG for me. As it is already in Debian and Fedora we need no vote.

- as 2.2.1 is out will you repack ?
- are you planning to make also python3 version ?

PS: nice to see that my hdf5 package is useful outside octave
