Re: pre-ITP: New category Gis?

I plan to ITP the following GIS packages in the next days.

proj (but maybe Charles wants to keep his ITP)
gdal (includes libgeotiff, ogr and a python lib)

Wait. Does gdal include libgeotiff internally, or does it install the
    the gdal library itself: cyggdal-X.dll

actual libgeotiff DLL?
and simply depend on that?

I know the gdal source tree includes the geotiff source tree; that's a separate issue.

If the former, then you'd also need a separate geotiff ITP (and then your gdal build could have the choice of using the external geotiff, or its own compiled-in geotiff). If the latter...ick. I don't like that at all.

I think I'd prefer to keep my ITP for proj (and libgeotiff; if there's no conflict between gdal using its own internal version, even with a separate libgeotiff package installed on the same machine), but I've been waiting for the hubbub to die down. (FYI: I work in a related field, although not primarily focused on the open standards surrounding GIS).
