Please be calm everybody.

I really liked to do the package. It has an not common
debian/rules. But I am not in love with the package.

I am a domestic user who wants to be a programmer. I do
not know complex situations where different scenarios
come up. My usage (computer) is simple.

I do not have a camera yet, but I am more closed to 
libgphoto2, gphoto2, gthumb. And some python packages.

Packages come and go.
