Default Bug#686322: ITP: libgoffice -- Document centric objects library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

Package name: libgoffice
Version: 0.9.5
Upstream Author: gnome.org
URL: http://git.gnome.org/browse/goffice/
License: GPL-2 or GPL-3
Description: Document centric objects library
GOffice is a library of document centric objects
and utilities building on top of GLib and Gtk+.

This is a new version of a library.
Many Gnome Office applications i.e. Gnumeric, AbiWord, GnuCash etc. will be
eventually linking to the new goffice library hence this is the effort to make
it available.
Implementation allow both libraries to co-exist gracefully and therefore
avoid transition and allow graceful decommission of goffice-0.8.

This year old library version 0.8 was NMUed twice and there is no evidence of
maintainer activity since August 2011.

I got no reply from maintainer since February 2012 when I emailed to him
offering help with packaging new version.

Also there is a corresponding wishlist #660182 which was not updated and no
estimation for possible availability given.

I forked the existing package and almost completely repackaged it.
