Looks like StefanBruens maybe he can state his reason on this list.

I can only guess, but here is a reply to
that wasn't sent to the list (hopefully accidentally, and I'm not sure
why I received it).

There are probably a few things on both sides that could have been
handled better.

Well, Dave is fed up.

He has resigned on all his graphics packages, and assigned maintainership to
me yesterday.

I've no idea, why differences cannot be solved in a cooperating way.

This bears the question, does our TW build chain or some library,

that OSL

relies on has an issue here? OIIO seems pretty outdated, we are using
1.8.17, while upstream is at now. Any reason, why we lagged
behind so far?



Thanks for working on the package.

The lowering of clang/llvm versions didn't work 100% even with patches
from git.
All fixed now by the long time maintainer of blender, it was my second

Again you just overstepped everyone else. Reviews exist for a reason.

You removed the stdosl.h lookup patch. As Pete already recognized, the
upstream patch is incomplete.

From what I can tell, the latest versions of OSL and OIIO from Dave *worked*
fine here. Now, that Dave reverted his latest changes to OIIO, things have
gone south of course (build dependency errors).

I'm pretty utilized at the moment. Not sure, when I find time to fix the mess.

Besides being a stress test for medical care and economics, Covid-19 seems to
be a heavy stress test for the psyche.
