 Installation of h5py is very problematic, especially for fresh QGIS users.
 Adding it to the official distribution would save them a lot of troubles.

 The h5py (http://h5py.org) package is a Pythonic interface to the HDF5
 binary data format. It lets you store huge amounts of numerical data, and
 easily manipulate that data from NumPy (requires NumPy 1.6.1 or newer).

 The h5py package is required by RiverGIS QGIS plugin

 Thanks a lot in advance!
