Bug#920777: ITP: libxmlb -- XML binary library




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Mario Limonciello <mario.limonciello@xxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : libxmlb
  Version         : 0.1.6
  Upstream Author : Richard Hughes <richard@xxxxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://github.com/hughsie/libxmlb
* License         : LGPL2.1+
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : XML binary library

 The libxmlb library takes XML source, and
 converts it to a structured binary representation with a deduplicated string
 table -- where the strings have the NULs included.
 .
 This allows an application to mmap the binary XML file, do an XPath query and
 return some strings without actually parsing the entire document. This is all
 done using (almost) zero allocations and no actual copying of the binary data.

This package is used by newer versions of fwupd and gnome-software as a
mandatory
dependency.

It's intended to be maintained by the debian-efi team as part of supporting the
UEFI stack.
