I had requested a fedora package review for ossim at bugzilla . The packaging spec is based on initial work by Volker and David. The main concern was about the copyright of GeoTrans code used in OSSIM? This is raised in the comment #21 . I had corrected other issues with the spec.
It would be great if you could comment on the usage of geotrans so that I can check with reviewer if an exception can be granted.
