Comment (by Dave-Allured):

 Replying to [comment:4 aaschwanden]:
 > As far as I can tell, there is not good reason to keep hdf5-18 around
 anymore, since the latest release of hdf5 is now compatible with netcdf.
 Can't we just get rid of the hdf5-18 port?

 (2017 May 10)  Hdf5-18 solves two particular problems: creation of
 backward incompatible hdf5 data files, and broken network file access with
 hdf5 version 1.10.0.  The first problem was solved only in netcdf-4.4.1,
 and not necessarily in any other hdf5-using packages.  AFIK, the second
 problem is still extant for many if not all Macs using network file
 servers.  Hdf5 version 1.10.1 provides an improved solution for the
 network file problem.

 I urge caution.  Please see ticket:54101 for more details.
