Bug#308419: ITP: ytnef -- improved decoder for application/ms-tnef attachments

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

* Package name    : ytnef
  Version         : 1.5
  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.
 ytnef parses these streams into normal MIME attachments and RTF
 attachments that you can read from non-Outlook mail readers.
 A convenience script is provided to allow users to transparently
 filter messages containing TNEF attachments into messages with
 proper attachments, via procmail.

Debs are ready, and I'll be contacting Nick Phillips, maintainer of a
similar (but IME inferior) package, about possible collaboration.
