1 Dear all,
3 once upon a time I thought it was a good idea to have FreeCAD (and its rdeps
4 pivy and opencascade) in the Gentoo tree. However, this turned out to be
5 painful, especially since I'm not really working with it anymore.
7 (pivy is dead upstream and does not build with gcc-4.7, opencascade is a HUGE
8 library set maintained by a company with a community fork by now, all is
9 rather, err, interesting code and build systems. License situation is
10 complicated.)
12 If you're interested, please pick the packages up; otherwise I'll drop all
13 three packages to maintainer-needed in a few days.
15 Cheers,
16 Andreas
