What is the rough time frame you have in mind for removing libusb-0.1-4
I'm asking because there are two options:
- pushing the current upstream version, with a transition, involving
around 30 rdepends, needing sourceful uploads for most of them, and
a rather complex device specific config migration, plus some pending
- backporting (looks to be pretty reasonable) the necessary changes for
libusb 1.0 to lirc 0.9.0 (or 0.9.1, which 'only' needs the config
migration, but not the library transition and the corresponding
