Re: [PATCH] gnu: Add opencascade-oce

Hello Marius,

Thank you for your review.

I wonder if this could fit in "engineering.scm". Or maybe "geometry.scm"
or "3d.scm". We try to avoid "single program" modules. What do you think?

Perhaps maths.scm is the best place, in order to avoid creating a new module.  The Gmsh package is already there.  To check; am I right in saying that a library in one module can be used as an input for a package in another module?  For example, if FreeCAD were to be packaged, and placed in engineering.scm, could it use opencascade-oce as an input from maths.scm?

+(define-public opencascade-oce + (package + (name "opencascade-oce") + (version "0.17.2")
Version 0.18 was released a few days ago!

It would be useful to package both versions.  There is a difference in the OpenGL graphics card requirements in going from version 0.17.2 to 0.18.

+ (license license:lgpl2.1))) ; plus header files exception
Please expand on the exception comment and mention OCCT_LGPL_EXCEPTION.txt. There are also some public domain files, and the bundled "gtest" is bsd-3. src/OpenGl/OpenGl_glext.h is distributed under the expat license. Some files generated by "bison" has GPL3+.

I have added the information about the expat and BSD-3 licenses.  Can you elaborate on the public domain files and Bison?
