Hi OSG users,

Loic Dachary has just uploaded a new openscenegraph package (2.2.0-2)
into Debian unstable. Some tweaks were added, which should address some
performance issues reported lately.

Thanks to the kind folks of <http://www.parisc-linux.org/>, we also got
access to an HP-PA machine to debug the build failure that started to
happen on this architecture with the 1.9.x series, which is a missing
-mlong-calls compile option (more details in [1,2]).

For the records, that prevented the openscenegraph package to migrate
into the Debian testing distribution, which should normally happen 10
days after the package is uploaded, if there is no release critical bug
and if the package is built on all platforms. Hopefully, this revision
will migrate without troubles now that the above-mentioned bug is

One can track which version is available for which architecture and
distribution on [3], and the status of the build for each architecture
on [4]. The delay before the packages appear on the mirrors shouldn't
exceed some days, depending on the considered architecture.

 4. http://buildd.debian.org/~jeroen/status/package.php?p=openscenegraph

(Note that neither m68k or hurd-i386 are taken into account for the
testing migration.)

I hope everything's fine with this upload.
