Hi Gerald and thanks for bringing this issue up,

This is definitely a very crucial matter for all OGC related software on 
the disk.
The problem is that we do not build everything from source but rely on 
many packages. So this kind of patching should be done upstream for each 
I realize that this is not the case right now. Actually I am not aware 
of any project having fixed this issue till now (and having released a 
stable version).

Another issue is that we might be against a double standard for a long 
time, since this change will not happen overnight.
I recall some project discussions about being compatible with both xlink 
versions to continue to support previous deployments.

I am afraid this will be an issue not just with OSGeoLive 6.0 but 
perhaps the next version too...

Perhaps we should update the status spreadsheet to monitor projects 
compatible with this new specification.

Best regards,
