Bug#556552: ITP: python-openelectrophy -- data analysis framework for intra- and extra-cellular recordings
Owner: Michael Hanke <email@example.com>
* Package name : python-openelectrophy
Version : 0.0.svn145
Upstream Author : Samuel Garcia, Nicolas Fourcaud-Trocmé
* URL : http://neuralensemble.org/trac/OpenElectrophy
* License : Cecill v2
Programming Lang: Python
Description : data analysis framework for intra- and extra-cellular recordings
This package provide a library und GUI for analyzing electrophysiological data.
(imagine the rest of a long description)
There has been some debate whether the Cecill v2 license can be
considered DFSG-compatible . Wikipedia says '?' . It claims to be
GPL-compatible and might allow relicensing under the GPL. If it turns out to
be incompatible, I'll try to talk with upstream about it -- otherwise
the package would target 'non-free'.
The software essentially exposes a 'pyssdh' package, hence the Debian
package might be named python-pyssdh. However, the package also serves
as the 'OpenElectrophy' GUI-application (via python-qt4) and I guess
this is what users would look for. It might be reasonable to add an
additional arch:all binary package 'openelectrophy' that merely contains
the short wrapper script distributed by upstream and a link in /usr/bin
and otherwise depend on python-pyssdh -- not sure yet whether this is
the way to go.
The main (and only) form of distribution is via SVN. It has never been
released the tarball way, hence the made up version.
I am about to add this project to the relevant task pages of the
Debian-Med and -Science pure blends.
