Default Bug#638653: ITP: yafaray -- free open-source raytracing engine

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Matteo F. Vescovi" <m.vescovi@revese.it>


* Package name : yafaray
Version : 0.1.2
Upstream Authors : Bert Buchholz <bertbuchholz@gmx.de>
Michele Castigliego <michele.castigliego@altasis.it>
Rodrigo Placencia Vzquez <darknesstide@gmail.com>
* URL : http://www.yafaray.org/
* License : LGPL-2.1
Programming Lang : Python, mostly
Description : free open-source raytracing engine

YafaRay is the result of rewriting the YafRay source code from scratch.
Mathias Wein started to work on the new engine in December 2005.
As a result of the rewriting and to make people aware that it was
actually a completely new engine, the YafRay name was changed into
YafaRay. Nobody knows for sure what the added 'a' stands for.

“free” and “open-source” are implied by the fact some software is
included in main.

> YafaRay is the result of rewriting the YafRay source code from scratch.

The description is unsuitable for the package itself. It should explain
what the software is for, rather than its history.

BTW, can it/will it replace other ray-tracing packages in Debian?
