Re: upgrade orfeotoolbox to 5.0

Hello Bas,

I have moved the files in ITCopyright section under GETCopyright. Also I updated the comment about ITK headers in ThirdParty/ITK/include.

Yes, I misread the ossim/otb bit.

That's cool too :-)

I've pushed some more license & copyright changes, the copyright files
is nearly done. I've added two TODOs that still need some work. The
first is for the explanation for the repacking, the other is for the
missing ITCopyright.txt that is used for quite a number of files. I
didn't find the ITCopyright.txt in the otb git repository history, it
may never have been included. Since the files are licensed under the
CeCILL-2.0 if the ITCopyright.txt cannot be found the separate Files
section can be merged in the general Files: * section.

I had checked about ITCopyright with the team and this file is in OTB
under  the name GETCopyright.txt in OTB/Copyright directory.

Is it possible to mention this in debain/copyright? For future releases I
will push the fix onto upstream.

The GETCopyright is already documented in the copyright, see:


The separate Files section for the ITCopyright files can be merged into that section.

Kind Regards,
