OSSIM 2.2.0 has been released (note: the subject of this thread should
have been 'OSSIM 2.0.0') which contains the fixes for the above issues
thanks to Rashad and others.

Unfortunately OTB 6.2.0 FTBFS with the new ossim packages [3], if OTB
6.4 will contain support for OSSIM 2.2.0 or they no longer require OSSIM
as a dependency, we can move OSSIM 2.2.0 to unstable and finally start
preparing the GEOS 3.6 transition.
