[sword-devel] Packagers Take Note

I don't know all the appropriate emails for SWORD packagers, but
figured this is as good a place as any to put out this notice.

SWORD SVN contains a few commits which should be interesting from the
point of view of packagers for Linux distributions. While the current
SVN is not directly compatible with the latest release of SWORD
(1.6.2), interested parties should take note of commits 2661, 2662 and
2665 when packaging. These commits introduce compatibility with
CLucene version 2.x while maintaining backwards compatibility with
version 0.9x.  Additionally, commit 2665 fixes a major bug in the
CMake build chain. Versions of the library without commit 2665 which
are built with CMake will detect CLucene during configure but will not
build against it, leaving the library with limited search

Anyone who used CMake in the past or who packages for a system with
CLucene 2 is encouraged to take a look at these three commits and
backport them to your patch system until the next release of the SWORD
library which ought to include these commits.
