Since 8.39 version of dcraw we have a problem
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dcraw/+bug/86480) because
author have changed licence. (look at
http://cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/dcraw.c).

Silently others programs may have by-passed this problem as digikam /
ufraw / rawstudio.
Can authors/maintainers tell us which version of dcraw is oncluded ?
Or confirm that :

ufraw 0.11 in Gutsy use 8.62
rawstudio 0.5.1+20070601 in Gutsy use 8.46
digikam 0.9.2 use libkdcraw1 0.1.1 in Gutsy which use 8.60


Debian devs are discussing also on this problem :
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=431883 but i can't see
any discussion with original author.

Can we seriously take this problem and talk with Dave Coffin to resolve
this ? I can't do that because my knowledge of licence is poor and my
english poor too :p

Taking care of photographers, and supporting their cameras is important
for the popularity of Ubuntu.

Best regards
