Builds locally and in koji for dist-f13[1] however it crashes on launch, complaining about an "invalid parentWindowHandle (wrong server or screen)" followed by a segfault:

Emailed upstream a few hours before discovering this, upstream acknowledges this problem, and has since 'neglected' the project, leading me to assume upstream would be dead if we indeed package this application...

First, thank you for the interest in Opeke and its packaging. The sad thing 
is, this has been a neglected project for quite some time. I've been busy with 
school this year, and I've been working on another project during the summer 

I'd must warn you than it doesn't work (crashes during startup) with latest 
stable Qt versions (look at the end of the message for details). I probably 
should have at least posted this on kde-apps. If you decide to package it, be 
sure to test if it works with Fedora's Qt.

I don't know, I think it should build with anything that starts with 4. I've 
never tested it on anything but the default Kubuntu installs. 

There is, however, a major issue which is probably a deal-breaker: OGRE 
embedding does not work with Qt 4.5, I figure there were some changes (or bugs) 
with QX11Info, one of its functions retirns 0 when it shouldn't. It used to 
work in Ubuntu 8.10, but crashes in 9.04 with the same OGRE version (1.4.9). 

It also hasn't been tested with OGRE 1.6 or later.

Thank you,

I will spend some time working on this package, but it appears to be hopeless given my admittedly zero knowledge of Qt development. Spec and SRPM will remain available for download at my people1 page[2].
