Hi guys,

I've made the code changes listed above to get the build to work using OGRE v1.9 source (minus the #include OgreProgressiveMesh which is no longer valid) and created the svn patch. I will investigate the process to get it submitted but in the meantime I've attached it here for the convenience of others. You would just right-click on the meshmagick directory and use the apply patch option in the svn context menu.

As far as I know, it's a mixture. Some of us team members have global access and other community members / maintainers have access to certain sub areas for the projects they (used to) maintain. Not sure if there is an active MeshMagick maintainer. I think Haffax used to have that position, but he is gone, so back to us as the team I guess to apply the patch.
According to source forge's docs, there's no fine grain (path) permissions, it's either you can write to the entire repository or you can't.
So in theory any of us with addons access should have full access. I've never tried writing to any addon besides the sketchup exporter though. I should try it on a readme or something harmless.

A lot of the addons are a little out of date. Other than dotscene, none of them have been touched for at least 3 years (10 years in some cases).

Yeah, it's a little frustrating but hey, whaddayagonnado? I've been working off the OgreBullet addon and have had to make the various changes to get that to work too. I wouldn't mind taking the torch (on OgreBullet) but would rather work with git and pull requests. Amusingly, to me at least, the last changeset on OgreBullet was adding a bunch of superfluous semicolons and whitespace as matter of personal taste.

Anyway, I think it would be preferable if each of the addon's had their own separate repository. It would make collaboration a bit easier than the old monolithic svn repo that should be put out to pasture. Small prohibitive factors, e.g. massive amounts of data that must be downloaded but are unneeded; opaque and inconsistent processes of checking-in and contributing, conspire to cause code atrophy. In theory, projects would be less likely to be abandoned and get out of date if the each were on github, bitbucket or sourceforge and you could submit pull requests.

I'm probably not saying anything that hasn't already been said so maybe I should just create a branch and see if it gets some traction. I just hate the fact that there is duplication making it more difficult for folks to know which repository to use. Also, as yet I haven't bothered to see if my changes work cross-platform.

MeshMagick has been updated for Ogre 1.10 and can be found in OgreAddons: https://bitbucket.org/ogreaddons/meshmagick :)

Hi,

I'm trying to use MeshMagick to do some transformations on a .mesh that I exported from Blender, but I don't know how to install from the bitbucket source. I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 Linux. I downloaded the ZIP file of the source code, but that's as far as I got. What do I do to install the source to be able to use the command line "MeshMagick ..." command?
