The problem we have with patching it downstream if we end up with a
conflicting versioning, or if we have to patch any app/library that may
currently support libcamera to support the versioned libraries.
I suppose the real question is what users outside of the libcamera included
utilities do we currently have to utilise libcamera? AKA what currently has
support for it?
The only user I know about (because the GStreamer element is currently part of
libcamera as well) is PipeWire (when built with -Dlibcamera=true):
Since having libcamera is the only way to support the camera in some devices
rpi4), I think that I'm leaning towards carry a downstream patch in the
I'm happy to take over this pkg and also coordinate with Wim for the PipeWire
