ITP: opencascade -- CAE platform library and scripting engine

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Package name: opencascade
Version: 6.2.0
Author: Open Cascade SAS (OCC), a French software services company
URL: http://www.opencascade.org/
License: Open CASCADE Technology Public License, includes triangle with non-free source
Description: CAE platform library and scripting engine


I am packaging OpenCASCADE, a powerful computer-aided engineering (CAE)
platform library and scripting engine.  It includes computer-aided
design (CAD) and visualization features, as well as some meshing for
analysis.  It also comes with its own scripting engine.

The license appears to be free, though upstream interprets it as
non-free, and the source includes the non-free "triangle" program.  See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2007/12/msg00066.html for details.

The current package is at http://lyre.mit.edu/~powell/opencascade/ .  I
plan to split the package using Jason Kraftcheck's scripts (see
http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2008/01/msg00013.html and
http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2008/01/msg00024.html for
details) before uploading.

This is a build-depend for Salomé which I ITP'd (bug 457075).
