Yes. I know.

And we don't (re)distribute them currently - that is exactly what I
wrote here initially.

But ideally we should not repackage your upstream tarball. Together with
it our patches to your source and our binary compilations of it, we
should instead simply redistribute your source as-is.

Which was my reason for bringing it to your attention. You don't need to
understand that. Let's just drop this unfruitful dialogue.

The Alioth group "pkg-gd" maintains GD version 2.x (source package named
libgd2) and some other packages using that library.

The Alioth group "php-gd" maintains php-gd, AFAIK.

Alioth groups only doing Debian packaging of software, not also the
"upstream" work, tend to be named "pkg-*". I apologize for assuming that
was the case here too.

You get on my nerves too, Pierre - let's not do that: Please communicate
through Sean or others from now on, Pierre. This is too tiresome.
