Ubuntu – How to request a package upgrade in the next Ubuntu release


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?

I looked at UbuntuDevelopment and ReportingBugs but I didn't see anything specific.

Would reporting a bug on launchpad be appropriate?

Best Answer

File a bug report on Launchpad and tag it with the 'upgrade-software-version' tag.
