Bug Description

There was already LP: #539009 about this, but once again Ubuntu seems to be packaging Shotwell on their own then the Debian maintainer does a very good job keeping the package up to date.

Please review the Ubuntu-only patches and switch to the Debian packages, submitting Ubuntu delta upstream or to Debian, if needed.

Thanks,
Andrej, a Shotwell user and the sponsor of the uploads of Shotwell to Debian

Thank you for your bug report, that's not really a bug though. We regularly rebase our packages on Debian and sync when possible, no need to keep a report in launchpad for that topic so I'm closing it

Changed in shotwell (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Opinion

Well, from a cursory glance the Ubuntu package looks very different from
the Debian's one, and it has for a long time.
