Hi,

What's the current state of this ITP? Is there any,
preliminary package?

Regards,
Goedson

Hi,

There is currently two open ITPs for the brlcad package (#289684
and #289632). Can you please determine which one of you will package it
for Debian (or if you are going to comaintain this package), set the
owners of the bugs accordingly and merge these two bugs?

Thanks.

An ITP and RFP open on the same software at the same time? Sloppy...
I guess merely checking before opening new ITPs isn't enough and I
should do the same before renaming RFPs... Well, first come first
serve, so I'll merge away mine.

As I said in my ITP, I was waiting for an reply to #349302.

Hello,

This is an automatic mail sent to close the ITP you have reported or
are involved with.

Your ITP wnpp bug is being closed because of the following reasons:
- It is, as of today, older than 365 days.
- It hasn't had any activity recently.

As this is an automatic procedure, it could of course have something
wrong and probably it would be closing some bugs that are not
intended by owners and submitters (like you) to be closed, for
example if the ITP is still of your interest, or there has been
some kind of activity around it. In that case, please reopen the
bug, do it, DO IT NOW! (I don't want to be blamed because of
mass closing and not let people know that they can easily reopen
their bugs ;-).

To re-open it, you simply have to mail <email address hidden>
with a body text like this:

 reopen 289632
 stop

Further comments on the work done in the bug sent to
<email address hidden> would be truly welcomed.
Anyway, if you have any kind of problems when dealing with
the BTS, feel free to contact me and I'd be more than happy to help
you on this: <email address hidden>.

A similar process is being applied to other kind of wnpp bugs.

Thanks for your cooperation,

Greetings,

BRL-CAD is a bit of a pain. It wants tcl/tk 8.5 or 8.6, and can't work
with Debian's itcl because it links with tcl/tk 8.4. But then BRL-CAD
can't work with the Debian tcl/tk 8.5 packages either. I guess we'll
need to wait for itcl 3.3 upstream, but the RC was more than two years
ago...

Also, it took quite a bit of doing to get ADRT to build, and I can't get
it to do anything useful. And it doesn't recognize that I have Java
installed. And the IGES importer crashed on me.

If you can solve these problems, I'd love to help, this looks like a
great package! But I think for now I'm going to leave BRL-CAD and focus
on Salomé...

Cheers,
-Adam

Hi,

Is anyone still considering packaging this? If it helps, there is a
debian source package at http://scientificcomputing.net/ , it looks like
he has version 7.10.2 packaged right now. Also, upstream released a
binary deb of version 7.8.4, see
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=105292&package_id=113559
. It would be really nice to have this package in debian proper, even if
it's an older version.

Thanks,
Tim

Indeed, I'm looking at it again, this time version 7.12.2...
If I get it to work, it'll be at http://sid.ethz.ch/debian/brlcad/

Yours,
Gürkan

Add BRL-CAD to the repository.

BRL-CAD is a free, open-source, cross-platform constructive solid geometry (CSG) solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) system developed by the United States Army Research Laboratory under the BSD/LGPL license.

retitle 289632 ITP: brlcad -- powerful combinatorial Constructive Solid Geometry
owner 289632 !

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "brlcad".

* Package name : brlcad
  Version : 7.12.4-1
  Upstream Author : Morrison, Christopher Sean <email address hidden>
                    U.S. Army Research Laboratory Point of Contact
                    Davisson,Edwin O. <email address hidden>

* URL : http://brlcad.org
* License : GPL/LGPL/BSD
  Section : graphics

It builds these binary packages:
brlcad - powerful combinatorial Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG)
brlcad-data - brlcad data files
libbrlcad - powerful combinatorial Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) library
libbrlcad-dev - powerful combinatorial Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) library

BRL-CAD is a powerful combinatorial Constructive Solid Geometry solid modeling
 system that includes interactive 3D solid geometry editing, high-performance
 ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, network-distributed
 framebuffer support, image and signal-processing tools, path-tracing and photon
 mapping support for realistic image synthesis, a system performance analysis
 benchmark suite, an embedded scripting interface, and libraries for robust
 high-performance geometric representation and analysis.
 .
 BRL-CAD supports a great variety of geometric representations including an
 extensive set of traditional CSG primitive implicit solids such as boxes,
 ellipsoids, cones, and tori, as well as explicit solids made from closed
 collections of Uniform B-Spline Surfaces, Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline
 (NURBS) surfaces, n-Manifold Geometry (NMG), and purely faceted mesh geometry.
 All geometric objects may be combined using boolean set-theoretic CSG
 operations including union, intersection, and difference.

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 289632

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/b/brlcad
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main
contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/b/brlcad/brlcad_7.12.4-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
 Giuseppe Iuculano

Hi,

> I am looking for a sponsor for my package "brlcad".

are you still looking for a sponsor? If so, please let me know and I'll
review/sponsor the package for you.

Cheers,

Bernd

Yes, I'm looking for a sponsor, thanks!

Hi,

brlcad is quite complex as package so... co-maintainer(s) is(are) welcome.

The git repository is on alioth/collab-maint:
URL git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/brlcad.git

 http://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/brlcad.git

At this moment, there are *a lot* of lintian warning that should be fixed:
# lintian -I brlcad_7.14.0+dfsg-1_amd64.changes | wc -l
583

Most of them are "hyphen-used-as-minus-sign", but I have also
binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath, and a lot of script-not-executable and
executable-not-elf-or-script.

Cheers,
Giuseppe.

Packaging of brlcad requires more time then I have and code quality is
worse then I expected. So renaming this bug back to RFP.

Apologies in advance, as it's not clear what the impact of nominating something for release entails. I'd be glad to help resolve any remaining release issues for getting BRL-CAD fully integrated, though.

Reviewing needs-packaging bug reports I have concluded that this bug is likely a duplicate of bug 311405. It'd be great if you could help consolidate these bug reports by performing the following actions.

1. Examine both bug reports to determine if they are actually duplicates.
2. Determine which bug report is more complete - a more complete bug report will have a status of Confirmed, Triaged or In Progress, may be assigned to someone or may possess a bug watch.
3. Mark the other bug report a duplicate of the complete one by clicking 'Mark as duplicate' on the right hand side of the bug page.

Thanks for helping out!

Bug 311405 is definitely a duplicate of this bug. There have been 12 releases, 3 major, since the last update to 311405 so this original report is still probably the most relevant. While the other bug had a lot of "discussion", not much useful progress was made.

The latest efforts that I'm aware are by 'mafm' with his files accessible via SVN here:

http://brlcad.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/brlcad/brlcad/trunk/misc/debian/

What is needed to move this forward?
