Bug#71306: ITP: GZigZag -- An implementation of Ted Nelson's ZigZag

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

I intend to package GZigZag, which is a Java implementation of Ted
Nelson's ZigZag.  A stable release is coming soon, and that's what I'll
be packaging.

ZigZag is a new way of putting information into computers, kind of
a crossing between a database, a filesystem, a personal information
manager and many others. And even that isn't sufficient to describe
it: it's simply something new.  The main point is the unifying ZigZag
structure in which everything is in cells or in their dimension-based
interconnections.  The current version is in many senses a prototype
or  a preview, but many useful things can already be done with it (for
example, presentations and managing your personal information).

URL: http://gzigzag.sourceforge.net/

The package is dual-licensed as LGPL and XPL (Xanadu Public License).
Debian will, of course, distribute it under the terms of the LGPL.

The program compiles cleanly with Jikes, but since Kaffe has a nasty bug
that makes GZigZag currently almost unusable with it, I'll be putting
GZigZag in contrib for now.  When the Kaffe bug is fixed, we'll move
to main.
