Other possible future packaging projects
LPub4 (GPL2, http://sourceforge.net/projects/lpub4/)
the mac port of lpub4 is qt based and compiles fine after regenerating the Makefile with qmake -spec /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/linux-g++ CONFIG+=release -o Makefile lpub.pro
- there are probems with the scaling of models
Somebody has patches to make it work on Fedora 19: https://retracile.net/blog/category/lpub4
seems barely alive - upstream took 2 years to respond: https://sourceforge.net/p/lpub4/discussion/702453/thread/d284c304/
Brickstore (GPL2, http://www.brickforge.de/software/brickstore/index.en.html)
- porting from qt3 to qt4 doesnt seem trivial
- violates the bricklink terms of service?
- based on Brickstore

LDForge (GPL3+, https://github.com/slatenails/ldforge)
- CAD modeller
- very young
Lic (GPL3+, http://bugeyedmonkeys.com/lic_info/)
- instruction creator like LPub4 but more automatic
- less customizable than LPub4 but easier to use
original author moved from googlecode to github and seems to be alive again: https://github.com/remig/lic
