Hi John,

I'm also packaging coin3d :-)

And I stumbled upon that problem too. Ludovic explained me on IRC: The
problem is the metadata directory ".hg": It contains metadata that is
not fixed. For normal hg-repositories, it will be stripped away, but
not recursively for those with sub-repos.

I have a patch that works. I just wasn't sure if it goes to master or
to staging, as it could affect the java-packages as well.

I'm attaching what I have here, will prepare an official patch tonight
or tomorrow.


PS: With coin3d, I want to add freecad. If that is your intention too,
we should share resources.
