Hugin developer launches photographic distortion correction database
The lead developer of the Hugin panorama-stitching application, Pablo d'Angelo, has proposed a new open database for collecting camera lens information that could be used to correct systematic distortion in photographs. The database would be populated by user-submitted calibration data and some data donated from a competitor, but the exact format and licensing of the database are still under consideration. One developer's suggestion would make proprietary software that uses the database pay for the privilege.

Re: Hugin developer launches photographic distortion correction database
that's similar to what DxO has been doing...except that they are doing the testing and calibration themselves...
