Please sync hamlib 1.2.10-1 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)
Justification for FFE:
The 'hamlib' package provides core ham radio "rig control" libraries used
by virtually all the ham radio applications which offer rig control.
Upstream development of hamlib has been very active [1,2] but Debian and
Ubuntu have been stuck on an old version for about a year, due to the
retirement of the main Debian uploader for the package. (I have assumed
that role; the 1.2.10-1 release proposed for sync is my packaging).
The new hamlib 1.2.10-1 release at Debian delivers support for many new
ham radio models and important fixes for numerous other radio models.
I have tested the 1.2.10-1 release in Lucid. The package builds and
installs fine [3,4]. I have attached the ouput from a simple library
test of hamlib's CLI utility 'rigctl' . I have also tested the
library with actual ham radios and other applications which use hamlib
(fldigi, grig, my own code).

Explanation of the Ubuntu delta and why it can be dropped:

been ported to this version.
