Orfeo and Ossim
Some good news on the Ossim and OTB side. I think we could start to see how
much the packages proposed by Julien are in good shape, and having some
experimental package in reasonable times now.

Definitely we are in better shape now on the packaging side.
End of last week we have add a first working package for Ubuntu
I will dedicate some time this week to push this to launchpad, and see
if that works also for Ubuntu releases in-between.
This package is done with both external ITK and external ossim.
The debian files are in  and .
On the debian front, the ossim package is way too much outdated. That is
But the work is already done in Ubuntu : the package from ubuntugis can
be used as a starter.
It is 1.8.16.
ITK can probably be used in its current state.
We have add some issues with dependencies conflict in Ubuntu (tiff and
hdf5), but it appears they don't apply on Debian.
>From my POV, the work for pushing it to Debian is :
- Update ossim package to latest release
- Start from  and see what happens in Debian
- Patch as needed...
Thanks for your interest in pushing OTB to Debian !
