h5py is looking at exposing the ros3 driver, and we’re wondering what is the best method to detect this. We’ve currently got two different implementations, one checks the ABI of the library, the other tries parsing the content of
libhdf5.settings. Is the format of
libhdf5.settings specified/can it be relied on long term (note: we’re not requesting that it be a long term format)?
P.S. The relevant h5py changes are https://github.com/h5py/h5py/pull/1755 and https://github.com/h5py/h5py/pull/1759.
