Bug#260524: ITP: axyl -- The Axyl web development platform

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist


I've already uploaded this, but forgot to file the ITP for
it, so here it is now... sorry!

The upstream developer is also in the New Maintainer queue, and
we have gone back and forth with a few revisions prior to my
recent upload.

security, database connections (with DB-independent layer) and versioned
content management (includes the HTMLArea wysiwyg editor), together with a
large set of building blocks and frameworks for building content delivery

An additional benefit is complete integration with Lucene, the industrial
strength text search engine. Axyl comes bundled with the latest stable
version together with a specially written LuceneServer which listens on a
port and services XML transactions for indexing and searching content. This
allows a developer to readily build a website which supports searching
across archives of 10's of millions of documents or more.

Axyl also uses a template-driven approach and themes, both of which allow
the  creation of websites which separate the look from the functionality.
A  page can therefore be coded once, but serve information up in multiple
