I found this having a look at the generated .diff.gz while preparing the
source package.

If you feel it's simpler to keep the whole omniORB source tree in our
SVN repo then feel free to do it.

Agreed. Let's keep this transition for 4.1.2-2. I'm currently reviewing
changes between 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 to make sure the ABI was not changed.

I have doubts on some changes:
 * Fix idl/COS/CosTime.idl => depending library should be bumped
 * include/omniORB4/IOP.h: in class IOP:
   + static _core_attr const ComponentId TAG_CSI_SEC_MECH_LIST;
   + static _core_attr const ComponentId TAG_NULL_TAG;
   + static _core_attr const ComponentId TAG_TLS_SEC_TRANS;
 * include/omniORB4/internal/orbParameters.h:
   + _CORBA_MODULE_VAR _core_attr CORBA::Boolean immediateRopeSwitch
 * include/omniORB4/omniIOR.h:
   + static void unmarshal_TAG_CSI_SEC_MECH_LIST
   + static char* dump_TAG_CSI_SEC_MECH_LIST
 * include/omniORB4/sslContext.h: in class sslContext
   + CORBA::Boolean    pd_ssl_owner; => ABI break; check use.

I need to dig further with the help of [1].

Also, the license was changed from LGPL 2 to LGPL 2.1.
