I was wondering if it's worth packaging up the Intersense library to
make it available for Fedora? Intersense makes sensors and chips for
motion tracking. I've recently started working with NavChip. It's how
I ran into the library. Navigation systems are an important research
subject in Robotics. What do you folks think?
Packaging it shouldn't be too complex. The README for linux says
provided in the SDK says:

I've failed to find any licensing information though. Should I start by
talking to legal?
Please only print if necessary.

Have you done any builds from the F17 cvs branch? (Hint: you should). :)

There are separate repositories for each branch of Fedora and each branch of
EL. There have to be, because of differing library versions between branches.
Sometimes this separation causes problems, because some maintainers aren't
interested in supporting EL. For example, for a long time, gstreamer plugins
weren't in the EL6 branch because the maintainer for the fedora branches wasn't
interested in EL6 support. That is currently being worked on. So far, there's
only gstreamer-ffmpeg, but I'm hoping someone else will pick up the rest. ^_^
