Re: OCE vs. OCC default build flag


I just looked and the 5.1.10 windows build is using OCE. I thought we switched over to OCC for msys2 builds but apparently not. I have switched to OCC on my windows msys2 builds. I think we should switch the msys2 5.1 builds to OCC because it resolves some issues.

I think that we should remove OCE altogether.  The existing versions have bugs that we cannot fix and it is fully deprecated at the source repository (https://github.com/tpaviot/oce/releases <https://github.com/tpaviot/oce/releases>) in that it only tags upstream releases and hasn't released any updates since 2018.

Keeping OCE in the build tree as an option is just asking for headaches that we can avoid in v6.

    I confirm that Fedora already selects OCC in its build scripts, both
    for the official 5.1 builds, and for the 5.99 nightlies.  The
    default can change without affecting Fedora.
