(I'm Dererk :-) )

As I explained [1] CCed to Fingerforce list, I was impulsed by
packaging and maintaining DanielDrake's projects when It was still
"DigitalPersona Finger Print" coursed.

As he changed the focus of his university project to a more generic
scanning layer, now I think it's not fair owning it as a whole.
Besides, the main problem is that all the DigitalPersona devices I
have aren't supported yet[2], so I'm not certain that the software
I'll package will either work or not.

As I emphasized, I wont throw everything overboard, at it's time he
said he would release the driver as it isn't still for taking out of
the oven, but I think it would be much more appropriate to co-maintain
than owning it, that's why I changed it's ownership.
