Hello Robert;

This is slightly off topic, but somewhat relevant, my apologies if there
is a better list to submit this request under.

In another thread, I mentioned that I have a slightly modified version
of OSG compiling on a Solaris 10 Sparc architecture, using cmake 2.6.
What I would like to know is what the mechanism is for submitting the
source code changes I made for review and submission into the OSG source
code base.

Hi All,

I've been doing merges and bug fixes today, and now I'm ready to tag the
2.5.5, but first I need feedback on how well things hang together across
platforms.  This is the first dev release with osgWidget as part of the
core OSG so this means that we really do need to test across as many
platforms as possible, as it's the code first wide exposure.

Another area that could potentially cause problem is that I've now moved
the old .net out trunk and into the deprecated annex of the OSG
svn (alongside the old flt plugin.)   If you still need it you can
grab it from :


I have hand modified the old Xcode projects to reflect this move of the
.net plugin out of the core OSG too, but since Xcode projects are a mess
it'd be easy for me to mess this up, so Xcode projects will certainly
need checking on this count.

Why move the .net plugin out?  We'll parts of it are GPL'd, so it
doesn't fit well with the OSG's more relaxed OSGPL (LGPL style) license,
and the socket code in it can cause problems with builds across
platforms.  Since the new libcurl plugin is OSGPL, and has more
functionality and is better future proofed, this is route to for http
access going forward.

Thanks in advance for your help in testing.
