I fully agree with Fathi, no political discussion via an Debian ITP in BTS.

Guido and me have been dragged in this bug log against our will. You can hardly
blame us for answering.

Not blaming anyone...

Whether a package is correctly licensed is certainly relevant to an ITP.
libjpeg-turbo is released with a different license than libjpeg, so it is
not possible to port code from libjpeg-turbo to libjpeg. So you can see
why Guido consider libjpeg-turbo with some hostility.

Ok, the license mismatch is a bummer... License issues surely are subject of an ITP. Agreed.

Thanks for giving the extra info on the license,
