Bug#308433: ITP: helpdeco -- decompile Microsoft WinHelp files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Paul Wise <pabs@zip.to>

* Package name    : helpdeco
  Version         : 2.1.1
  Upstream Author : Manfred Winterhoff <mawin@gmx.net>
* URL             : http://sf.net/projects/helpdeco/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : decompile Microsoft WinHelp (.hlp) files

helpdeco dissects HLP help files (WinHelp) of Windows 3.0, 3.1, 3.11,
and Win95 and many MVB multi media viewer titles into all files required
for a rebuild using the appropriate help compiler HC30, HC31, HCP, HCW,

This software is in the process of relicencing from a no-commercial-use
licence to the GNU General Public Licence >= 2. Upstream (which I
suppose I am now part of, having initiated the relicencing and done the
commits) is checking the current CVS version before release. I will
begin packaging it and send an RFS after the newly relicenced release is
out. Along with the original author, we invited the helpdeo NetBSD
maintainer to join us in maintaining the code and he accepted.
