Orion, I've got absolutely no problem with you becoming the maintainer
for this package. Its been sitting complete in my directory of "done,
but unsubmitted" packages for some time now, and since there seems to be
interest in it without szip, here it is:

SRPM:
http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/hdf5-1.6.4-2.fc4.src.rpm
SPEC: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/hdf5.spec

Summary: A general purpose library and file format for storing
scientific data

Description:
HDF5 is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific
data. HDF5 can store two primary objects: datasets and groups. A dataset
is essentially a multidimensional array of data elements, and a group is
a structure for organizing objects in an HDF5 file. Using these two
basic objects, one can create and store almost any kind of scientific
data structure, such as images, arrays of vectors, and structured and
unstructured grids. You can also mix and match them in HDF5 files
according to your needs.

I can't really review this (since its my spec). :) If Orion doesn't want
to own it for some reason, I will.

Thanks,

~spot
