Bug#219507: ITP: gtkscintilla2 -- Gtk-2 wrappers for the Scintilla source editing components

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : gtkscintilla2
  Version         : 0.0.8-aj
  Upstream Author : Andy Jeffriess <andy@gphpedit.org>, Dennis J Houy <djhouy@paw.co.za>
* URL             : http://www.gphpedit.org/, http://http://sourceforge.net/projects/moleskine

  Description     : Gtk-2 wrappers for the Scintilla source editing components

GtkScintilla2 provides a Gtk-2 wrapper for the Scintilla <www.scintilla.org>
source code editing component and adds some features to it. Scintilla is 
only available as a static library and has an unusual API, so GtkScintilla2
provides access to Scintilla features through a shared library as a true
GtkWidget subclass with a GTK2+ API.

Note1: This release is based on the '-aj' (Andy Jefriess <andy@gphpedit.org>)
patched source tree required by gPHPEdit. This does not prevent it being
used by packages other than gPHPEdit, as it adds functionality without
otherwise affecting the API. Current upstream Dennis J Houy <djhouy@paw.co.za>
has indicated the -aj patches should ultimately be merged into the official
tree, at which time the -aj tree will become redundant and this package will
be switched to build from the official tree instead. This situation has been
carefully discussed with all parties involved.

Note2: I am aware of bug #107496, originally an ITP and now an RFP for
libgtkscintilla and others. I'm not closing that bug with this package because
it refers to a version of GtkScintilla for Gtk-1, and I am not packaging the
other items listed in that RFP.
