Hi all,

Unfortunately until now I have overlooked / missed the fact that ogre includes 
its own private copy of GLEW and of a few OpenGL headers, both if which are 
licensed under the not 100% free, SGI Free Software B and GLX Public License 

I've already pushed a version of ogre to rawhide with this fixed (its using the 
system version of the OpenGL headers and GLEW (which is especially patched by 
yours truly to not have the license problem) instead.

Ar request of Spot I'll also be pushing the devel version to Fedora-8 and -7 
updates, I'll also be pushing a new version of the ogre using chess package (I 
wish I wasn't so green when I packaged that and that I would have used a less 
generic name) too.

AFAIK chess is the only user of ogre, I've verified this with repoquery:
[hans at localhost ~]$ repoquery -q --whatrequires 'libOgreMain-1.4.5.so()(64bit)'
[hans at localhost ~]$

If you have an ogre using package in F-8, a simple rebuild should fix things, 
notice that for F-7 we're going from 1.2.5 -> 1.4.6 , so thats not only an ABI 
breakage but also an _API_ one, so a mere recompile won't fix this. If you 
expect to be bitten by this please yell loudly asap.
