vtk bundles libraries
Last modified: 2015-10-21 13:47:09 EDT
Description of problem:
vtk bundles several libraries:
* DICOMParser in Utilities/DICOMParser: upstream seems to be http://www.itk.org/Wiki/MetaIO/Documentation.
* kwsys in Utilities/KWSys: it's declared a copylib by upstream (kitware.com, same as vtk), but it should be a proper shared library, as it's much too large (though partial bundling is possible) and it seems to be bundled by all projects from kitware (http://public.kitware.com/gitweb?p=KWSys.git)
* MetaIO in Utilities/MetaIO - see http://www.itk.org/Wiki/MetaIO/Documentation and bug 1076793.
* some OpenGL headers in Utilities/ParseOGLExt/headers
This came up during the discussion of FPC ticket #555 (https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/555).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kwsys bundling has been noted in vtk-6.2.0-9.fc24
Upstream tickets for MetaIO filed:
Bundled libraries noted.
