I'm looking to move our company from Fedora 13 to the upcoming 12.04. We've built custom HDF5 1.8.7 RPMs that are newer than the 1.8.4 version in 12.04. If we go to 12.04 I'd like it to have the latest HDF5 library so I don't need to package it ourselves. How do I request an upgrade to the package?
Would reporting a bug on launchpad be appropriate?
