I intend to package LifeLines, an ncurses-based genealogy program. I have
already packaged an earlier version as an exercise.
I have asked the author, Tom Wetmore for permission to package; he
responded very graciously: "Go to http://lifelines.sourceforge.net where
you will find LifeLines already converted to a CVS package, and with quite
a few changes beyond my last efforts. LifeLines is now under the MIT open
source license so it can be distributed free by anyone in any format."
I am not yet a Debian developer but will send my application shortly.
