I decided to try out OpenMW after recently learning how far along the project
is. To my joy, the latest version was already packaged. To my dismay the
version of openscenegraph it depended on no longer built (I believe commit
98b9f3a4bdwhich added a separate output for plugins was what broke the child
package, as the error was with the mkdir in the new phase).
I have fixed the build by removing the new output and phase from
openmw-openscenegraph. I have also updated the package to the latest commit
from https://github.com/OpenMW/osg.Two points to note about the changes:
1) Simply updating the package to the (much) newer commit fixes the build in
the presence of the separate plugin output, but I kept the plugins in the
main output since they are needed by OpenMW and I worry that the separate
output will cause problems with OpenMW being able to find them.
2) The existing openmw-openscenegraph package appears to be at a commit from
2018 that does not seem to be a commit in https://github.com/OpenMW/osg.
