Please don't start a useless discussion, that is a well know thing. If
there is a computer-readable source it should be provided. If you make a
photo then the photo is all that is needed.

If you use xfig to create a diagram and make an eps from it the .fig
file should be shipped, too.

It is not SOOOOOOOO complicated to grab what is the intention, or?

Best wishes
