ITP: wv2 -- a library for converting Microsoft Word documents

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Hi all.  I intend to package the wv2 library with binary packages libwv2-1 and 
libwv2-dev.  Although wv2 and wv are distributed from the same website, they 
are shipped as different source packages on different release cycles.  I 
tried some months ago to contact the wv maintainer to see if (s)he is 
planning to upload wv2 but received no response.  I'd thus like to package 
wv2 myself since it is required by newer versions of koffice.

Package name: wv2
Version: 0.0.9
URL: http://wvware.sourceforge.net/
License: LGPL

Upstream Authors: Dom Lachowicz <cinamod@hotmail.com>, Shaheed Haque 
<srhaque@iee.org>, Werner Trobin <trobin@kde.org> and David Faure 

Description: a library for accessing Microsoft Word documents

The wv2 library allows access to Microsoft Word documents, for the purpose of 
converting them to other formats.  This library is intended as an eventual 
replacement for the wv library.
