New packages have just been upload into Debian's master archive. These are
Ggobi 1.0-1-beta (which I renamed 0.99.99 so that a future 1.0.0 sorts
higher for dpkg) and Rggobi 1.1-1.  Both needed some minor fudging as
documented in the changelogs included below. 


ggobi (0.99.99-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release 
  * Upstream version 1.0-1-beta renamed 0.99.99 to permit a 1.0.0 package
  * Upstream configure files and built system are somewhat broken with 
    respect to the plugin architecture -- we have been unable to build
    this for the last few beta releases. Consquently, plugins for 
    - Postgres
    - Dataviewer
    - Fileselector
    - Ggvis
    have been disabled by brute force via a patch to configure.in.
  * Consequently, removed the enties for libmysqlclient-dev, python-dev, 
    postgresql-dev from Build-Depends 
  * debian/control: Standards-Version increased to

rggobi (1.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * src/Makevars.in: As ggobi's ggobi-config would appears to be broken, 
    we added explicit statements '-I/usr/lib/ggobi/include' to PKG_CPPFLAGS 
    and '-L/usr/lib/ggobi/lib' to PKG_LIBS
  * R/GGobiHome.S: Dito, setting '/usr/lib/ggobi'
  * Built under R 2.0.*
  * debian/control: Updated Build-Depends: and Depends: accordingly
  * debian/post{inst,rm}: Only run build-help.pl if R is installed
  * debian/watch: Added watch file

If your hair is standing up, then you are in extreme danger.
