Are you kidding ? No *communication* :( At this stage we never wanted
an update for any reason, nor extra work for lot of other folks. Alas
I had some more time at hand.
Did you receive my previous email thursday following the last discussion
about OpenCV 2.0 ? (Nicolas and Karel were CC'ed too)
I'm sorry if you didn't get it. :(
I was waiting OpenCV folks decision about the soname issue, hoping that
they stick to a saner soname policy. But then i was busy with job
interviews. I've just moved in and started my new job this week.
Anyway, since OpenCV brutally removed autotools support from svn , we
have no other choice than moving to cmake.
As OpenCV 2 has never been shipped into a stable release, pushing the
change now will avoid us struggling with soname issues later in stable
releases (unless upstream decides to break stuff again).
OpenCV 1.x was nothing more than a glorified "beta" (if not alpha) for
Intel, OpenCV 2.x is expected to be a little more stable.
By itself, the move to cmake is no problem: it's well maintained (issues
with sse are fixed for instance), the libdir patch was done, and no
problems with chrooted builds. If I could, i would have rebuilt myself
the packages to avoid that annoyance to fellow maintainers.
 it was supposed to be maintained at least during the whole 2.0.x
