Mapnik is an OpenSource C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS
(Geographic Information Systems) applications. At the core is a C++
shared library providing algorithms/patterns for spatial data access and
Essentially a collection of geographic objects (map, layer, datasource,
feature, geometry), the library doesn't rely on "windowing systems" and
is intended to work in multi-threaded environments
High-level Python bindings (boost.python) facilitate rapid application
development, targeting zope3, django, etc.
This package is a transitional package, and can be safely removed if
nobody depends on it.

mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Standards-Version 3.9.5
* Set priority of python-mapnik2, libmapnik2-dev to oldlibs/extra.
* Add 1002 upstream patch to reduce memory usage during compilation
* Disable debugging symbols to save memory during compilation.
This and the previous change should be enough to close: #742149.
* Build multiple python versions using scons properly, so that scons
doesn't build everything twice.
* Copyright:
+ use Files-Excluded, now repackaging is done by uscan
+ add section for debian/rules technique taken from fife package
* Watch github directly, no need for githubredir.

* Disable completely parallel builds. It might be responsible
for memory exhaustion on s390, mipsel, mips.
2013-10-02 - Jérémy Lal <>
mapnik (2.2.0+ds1-3) unstable; urgency=low

04-port_to_new_boost.patch removed
* Python bindings testsuite temporarily disabled
* Adapt debian/rules get-orig-source target to new upstream layout
* Build-Depends on libpng-dev instead of libpng12-dev (Closes: #662425)

+ switch to copyright 1.0 format
+ DFSG-exclude tests/data/fonts/XB\ Zar.ttf (missing license)
+ conveniently exclude scons, fonts, and some test files for the
sake of copyright simplification.
* rules:
+ update input plugins list, remove geos, kismet and add csv,
geojson, python.
+ disable building demo
+ remove unneeded workarounds in some targets
+ call epydoc directly instead of fiddling with build script
+ pass hardening build flags to mapnik SConstruct,
