Bug#308418: ITP: libytnef -- improved decoder for application/ms-tnef attachments

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Joshua Kwan <joshk@triplehelix.org>

* Package name    : libytnef
  Version         : 2.6
  Upstream Author : Russell Hand <yerase@yeraze.com>

  Description     : improved decoder for application/ms-tnef attachments

 Yerase's TNEF Stream Reader allows you to decode application/ms-tnef
 e-mail attachments, which are usually entitled "winmail.dat" and are
 generally a file container format that is only readable by Microsoft
 Outlook. Some TNEF streams also include RTF-formatted data.
 libytnef0 is the support library that exposes these functions to other
 programs. The ytnef program (and eponymous package) is the frontend for
 this library, so you should probably install that if you want to take
 advantage of it.

and for the -dev package:

 These are the development headers for libytnef0.


This kind of supersedes the tnef package in quality, IMO, so I'll be
talking to the maintainer Nick Phillips about collaborating on this,
though I already have packages ready.
