Octave 4.4 update coming soon to rawhide

I've planning on building octave 4.4 soon (next day or two) in rawhide.
I've been building dependent packages here:

<a href="https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/scitech/octave4.4/packages/" title="https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/scitech/octave4.4/packages/">https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/scitech/octave4.4/packages/</a>

Anyone in the scitech group can submit builds there if needed.

Notes on needed changes to packages are here:

I'm going to start working on PRs for the various changes for
maintainers to review.

VTK 8.1.1 coming to rawhide

Building now. I'll be rebuilding dependent packages when it completes
tomorrow.

Some packages (InsightToolkit, DiffusionKurtosisFit, and petpvc) are
failing to build due to an issue with vxl and C++11. I've filed
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1637255" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1637255">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1637255</a>

documentation issue

<a href="http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html#client_tls_reuse" title="http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html#client_tls_reuse">http://www.postfix.org/TLS_README.html#client_tls_reuse</a> contains this:

To enable multiple deliveries per TLS connection, specify:

/etc/postfix/main.cf:
smtp_tls_connection_reuse = yes

However, that does not appear to be a valid postfix option.

plplot 5.13.0 soname bump

I'll be buiding plplot 5.13 and dependencies shortly. This has a soname
bump.

Intent to retire StarCluster and python-iptools

I'm going to be retiring StarCluster and its dependency python-iptools
shortly. Upstream is dead and I'm not using it.

libdap 3.19.1 soname bump

I'll be building libdap 3.19.1 soon in rawhide. This includes a soname
bump so dependencies will be rebuilt as well.

Help with strict-aliasing warning

I'm getting:

/builddir/build/BUILD/gdl-0.9.8/src/basic_pro_jmg.cpp: In function 'void
lib::linkimage(EnvT*)':
/builddir/build/BUILD/gdl-0.9.8/src/basic_pro_jmg.cpp:159:36: warning:
dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules
[-Wstrict-aliasing]
(BaseGDL* &) dynFun[count_fun] =
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^
(BaseGDL*) dlsym(module[count], entryName.c_str());

dynFun is defined as:

BaseGDL*(*dynFun[MAXNDLL/2])( EnvT* e);

This is all beyond me. Missing the function pointer argument specification?

Thanks.

New gdl segfaults with gcc 8 in antlr

I've just discovered that gdl appears to be segfaulting a lot now deep
in the antlr c++ generated parser code with the switch to gcc 8. Has
anyone else run into similar issues?
