I understand that, Ricky. What I am saying though, is just because some 3rd party package addresses proper loading of firmware doesn't mean this is "fixed release" in Ubuntu. This is not meant to be a derogatory statement towards Etienne and other community contributors, but rather for the out-of-the-boxness of Ubuntu. Macbooks and iSights are common hardware and to ask people to go grab a third party deb to get their webcams working is somewhat unreasonable of a solution.

Before marking this fix released in Ubuntu I'd like a bit more closure on how we can better integrate ift's functionality into Ubuntu officially.
