Bug#306119: ITP: gwaterfall -- View all characters of font in all sizes

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ognyan Kulev <ogi@fmi.uni-sofia.bg>

* Package name    : gwaterfall
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Noah Levitt <nlevitt@columbia.edu>
* URL             : http://keithp.com/cvs/gwaterfall/
* License         : MIT-like
  Description     : View all characters of font in all sizes

 With gwaterfall, you can browse characters of font in different
 rendering configurations.  There is line for each font size from 5px
 to 36px -- thus the name "waterfall".  The following parameters can
 be changed and view is updated immediately on screen: font size range
 and increment, hinting, autohinting, anti-aliasing, subpixel
 smoothing, and aspect.

Upstream has named binary as waterfall, but CVS module is gwaterfall
because there is older waterfall module.  I named package as gwaterfall
to avoid confusion with original program written by Keith Packard.

I have written manual page for Debian.

Both package description and manual page need review by native speaker.
