Let see if the community has any interest in this package. There are a
couple of gray areas remaining:

- should I keep the version number 62 (aka 6b) from IJG or will this
confuse people ?

The version number should be different from the other libjpeg inside

- I have a couple of patch in the gdcm/jpeg that have not been
applied. It concern broken JPEG implementation and have not been seen
outside of the DICOM world.

I have no idea in how far these patches make sense for general use outside
Debian - than they should be included into the tarball (under a new version,
because it is just a new upstream version).  If they only are useful for
specific Debian package they should be applied using quilt or dpatch.

- if this package ever gets into debian, I think dcmtk package should
use it instead.


I forgot to mention, the debian/* files are not shipped with the
tarball and can be found instead at:


This is really great.  I think I just elaborated about debian files in
upstream tarball - thanks for this sane decision.

Any volunteers to build an official Debian package from it to proceed
with the dicom issues?

Kind regards and thanks for your fine work
