Bug#292643: ITP: cl-s-xml -- simple Common Lisp XML parser

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Luca Capello <luca@pca.it>

Hash: SHA1

* Package name    : cl-s-xml
  Version         : 3+cvs.2005.01.27
  Upstream Author : Sven Van Caekenberghe <svc@mac.com>
* URL             : http://common-lisp.net/project/s-xml/
* License         : Lisp LGPL
  Description     : simple Common Lisp XML parser

 S-XML is a Common Lisp implementation of a simple XML parser, with
 a SAX-like and DOM interface.
 This XML parser implementation has the following features:
  * It works (handling many common XML usages).
  * It is very small (the core is about 400 lines of code, including
    comments and whitespace).
  * It has a core API that is simple, efficient and pure functional, much
    like that from SSAX (see also http://ssax.sourceforge.net).
  * It supports different DOM models: an XSML-based one, an LXML-based one
    and a classic xml-element struct based one.
  * It is reasonably time and space efficient (internally avoiding garbage
    generatation as much as possible).
 This XML parser implementation has the following limitations:
  * It does not support CDATA.
  * Only supports simple character sets.
  * It does not support name spaces
  * It does not support any special tags (like processing instructions).
  * It is not validating, even skips DTD's all together.


I already packaged it, it's available on my unofficial Debian repository:

My GPG key is 6D742669, http://keyserver.linux.it or http://luca.pca.it,
key fingerprint 10CD 0397 6DBE 1E36 DEA3  72CC 540A 7B5E 6D74 2669

The package is based on other cl-* packages, I followed the "Debian
New Maintainers' Guide" and it's lintian checked.

This is my first *official* Debian package, it will be follow ASAP by
cl-gtk (which needs to be checked for some little Debian things). I
haven't wrote to the sponsor list yet, because AFAIK most of the cl-*
packages are updated by Kevin M. Rosenberg <kmr@debian.org>, so maybe
he'd be direct interested in sponsoring me (or whatever the best for
this and the other cl-* packages I'm going to ITP).

I'm here for any other questions, suggestions, etc.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
