Bug#913766: ITP: librsvg-c -- the pre-Rust version of librsvg




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, glaubitz@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Owner: jbicha@xxxxxxxxxx

Package Name: librsvg-c
Version: 2.40.20
Upstream Authors: Ximian, Eazel, Red Hat, Igalia, etc.
License : LGPL-2+
Programming Lang: C
Homepage: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/LibRsvg
Description: SAX-based renderer library for SVG files
 The rsvg library is an efficient renderer for Scalable Vector Graphics
 (SVG) pictures.

Other Info
--------------
As requested, this is librsvg reintroduced for ports that don't
supported the rustified librsvg yet. The name is because this is
librsvg written in the C programming language (instead of in Rust).

Packaging can be found at https://salsa.debian.org/gnome-team/librsvg-c

Currently, the packaging builds the same binary package names as
src:librsvg. There was a suggestion to use different binary names with
versioned Provides (against the existing librsvg binary package
names). I'm not sure that provides much benefit but we can discuss
that.

I don't have the ability to do the initial upload for this package
since I don't have easy access to do the binary build required for
ftp-master NEW.

I don't have experience with archive management for non-release
architectures at all.

Thanks,
Jeremy Bicha
