Dear Alexander and Julien,

Please accept my apologies for uploading just now without incorporating
yoru recent changes.  I had not seen your NMU uploads because they came
via the BTS system to debian-science-maintainers, a very high traffic
list which I'm unfortunately not able to read as frequently as I'd like.

Your messages came during a particularly busy couple of weeks, and just
now when I tried to "catch up" by preparing the illuminator upload, I
did so before reading through the last two weeks of d-s-m traffic.

I'll prepare a new -10 upload by the end of the day incorporating your
recent changes.
