Bug#461583: ITP: libdc1394v2 -- As the maintainer for libdc1394 didn't answer for many months, we (developers of libdc1394) would like to get involved also with maintaining the package.
 
Package: wnpp
Severity: urgent
Owner: Peter Antoniac <theSeinfeld@users.sf.net>

As the maintainer for libdc1394 didn't answer for many months, we
(developers of libdc1394) would like to get involved also with maintaining
the package. Moreover, the maintainer didn't follow our recommandations not
to pack the libdc1394 version 2.0 until we release it (and he packed it at
RC7). It will be also better for the stability of the package if the
developers have also something to say in the packaging. For example, we have
releases the new version with doxygen generated web pages, pdf's and ps
documentation, so there is more documentation available for the developers.
We also think that what is now called libdc1394-examples should be called
-utils, as the binaries are more like utilities for the library. We have
already done some packaging and testing using the Ubuntu PPA tools, and you
can already see the fruits of our work here:
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11427933/libdc1394v2_2.0.1-1ubuntu1.dsc and
