Install libgdal-grass metapackage instead of version specific library package

Reported by: Bas Couwenberg Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone: OSGeoLive10.5
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords:


Starting from libgdal-grass (2.1.1-1~exp1) the libgdal-grass source package provides the libgdal-grass metapackage which depends on the version specific library package (e.g. libgdal20-2.1.1-grass).

The metapackage is intended to ease installation and upgrade of the version specific library package, and is suggested by the gdal-bin package (not recommended to avoid a circular dependency that would complicate upgrades).

Once the GDAL packages in OSGeo-Live are upgraded to version 2.1.1 or later attachment:install_grass.patch can be applied to install the metapackage instead of the version specific library package, removing the need to change the version in the install script every time the GDAL version changes.
