Background is, that I'm a Backer of their logic analyzer which basically
works very well.
It gets weird when they "ripped of" the sigrok project code (at first
without any attribution).
They entirely failed to provide a single tarball of their stable
releases which could simply be built without patches.

If you take a look at the dslogic package I had to pin the git commit
and patch to get it working properly.
(Aside from that I still "have to" move their firmware from
/usr/bin/res/<...> to a more sensible location. For which I'm still
working on a patch.)
