Comment (by rashadkm):

 The question is asked before(on ther mailing list) and answer was and is
 "No". Last time, I checked with ossim developers some time ago (1.8.18)
 and they said No. "If geos c++ api is no longer available . They will move
 to C API"

 Now questions to you.

 Q: Why should the package upgrade be blocked because of ossim using geos c
 api. ?

 Q: Is using goesc++ api in ossim by any means a violation in osgeo4w ?

 Q: Can you provide a detailed explaination why geos c++ api is not
 included while geos-devs says it is supported and is legal to use it. ?
