Default Bug#614064: ITP: libconvert-ytext-perl -- encode utf8 string into rfc2822 localpart

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@debian.org>

Package name : libconvert-ytext-perl
Version : 0.1.2
Upstream Author : David Bremner <ddb@cpan.org> (i.e. me)
URL : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Convert-YText/
License : Same as perl (Artistic or GPL1+)
Programming Lang: Perl
Description : module to encode utf8 strings into rfc2822 localpart

Convert::YText converts strings to and from "YText", a format inspired by
xtext (defined in RFC1894), and the MIME base64 and quoted-printable types (RFC
1394). The main goal is encode a UTF8 string into something safe for use as
the local part in an internet email address (RFC2822).
By default spaces are replaced with "+", "/" with "~", the characters
"A-Za-z0-9_.-" encode as themselves, and everything else is written "=USTR="
where USTR is the base64 (using "A-Za-z0-9_." as digits) encoding of the
unicode character code. The encoding is configurable.

I'm uploading this to Debian because I'm using it for some Debian
infrastructure hacking. I'll be relying on the good folks in pkg-perl
to help me maintain it.
