We are trying to package latest version into Fedora, but there are 
dependencies, which are not useless in Fedora (waffle-jna) and ones which we

We think that it's not a good, when open-source project depending on packages, 
which licence is not 100% clear.

Other distros seem to have similar problem 
We will be thankful for any idea.
