I saw that enki fails due to Qt 5.11.

I can heal that with going to the newest commit in the source
repository (we fetch from git anyway). Simple patch attached.

But the package has little use on its own and then we have the same
problem with aseba and I wasn't able to heal that with just going to
the latest commit. There are other problems, and I didn't want to
invest too much time into that package.

Note that aseba doesn't have a good build history anyway:

https://hydra.gnu.org/job/gnu/master/aseba-1.6.0-0.3b35de8.x86_64-linux/all
https://hydra.gnu.org/job/gnu/master/aseba-1.6.0-0.3b35de8.i686-linux/all
https://hydra.gnu.org/job/gnu/master/aseba-1.6.0-0.3b35de8.armhf-linux

Anyone using it?

General note:

As far as I know, this package is here for the Thymio robot, not for
the asaba Framework as such.

In spring 2018, Mobsya (the organisation behind Thymio) decided to go
their own way, because they don't have the capacity to maintain the
whole aseba framework as such. Maintainer wanted for the old aseba
project. See this announcement for more details:

https://github.com/aseba-community/aseba#thymio-and-mobsya-fork
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ijY2dZR2TbSySMqFfbCgG_ifZPGoxrAQaVuZVQZHKlY/edit#

So, in the long term, we should base the package definition on their
repository:

https://github.com/Mobsya/aseba

They don't have a released version yet. And they pull in a lot more
dependencies via git.

Hi, just following up on this old bug.

Enki is now building fine.

It looks like they have a released version now (2.2.0, in fact).

There is also the Debian-maintained fork of the original:

https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/aseba

Since aseba continues to fail building, we should either remove it, or
switch to one of those two.
