Ogre3d : Upstream paths have changed and the licensing has changed
I was looking at Ogre3d for an updated package of Ogre and found a
few inconsistencies in the PTS . This is the overview of the package
There is wrong or oudated information at two places.
The watch URL for the package should be changed in
http://dehs.alioth.debian.org/report.php?package=ogre from sf.net/ogre
to the bitbucket.org mercurial repository.
Please look at http://dehs.alioth.debian.org/report.php?package=ogre
and then at https://bitbucket.org/sinbad/ogre/. The subversion
repository is no longer being maintained and it has been said there as
b. The copyright file. The copyright says LGPL while upstream changed
licensing to a more permissive MIT License.
Please look at http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/o/ogre/ogre_1.6.4.dfsg1-1/copyright
and then at https://bitbucket.org/sinbad/ogre/raw/3e9ed7c712e1/Docs/ChangeLog.html
Go down quarter of a page and see :-
v1.7.0 [Cthugha] (28 February 2010) - MAJOR RELEASE
[View changes since RC1]
OGRE 1.7 is now released under the MIT License
I could have filed bug but this is more better. Hoping to see a new
release of the package atleast in experimental. If there are other
dependency issues atleast point me to that so I know.
