Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : r-cran-stringdist
  Version         : 0.9.4.7
  Upstream Author : Mark van der Loo, Jan van der Laan, R Core Team,
* URL             : https://cran.r-project.org/package=stringdist
* License         : GPL-3
  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R approximate string matching and string distance functions
 Implements an approximate string matching version of R's native 'match'
 function. Can calculate various string distances based on edits (Damerau-
 Levenshtein, Hamming, Levenshtein, optimal sting alignment), qgrams (q-
 gram, cosine, jaccard distance) or heuristic metrics (Jaro, Jaro-
 Winkler). An implementation of soundex is provided as well. Distances
 can be computed between character vectors while taking proper care of
 encoding or between integer vectors representing generic sequences.

This is a dependency of my final target r-cran-sjplot.
