Bug#430140: ITP: hoard -- Fast, scalable, and efficient replacement memory allocator

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Russ Allbery <rra@debian.org>

* Package name    : hoard
  Version         : 3.6.2
  Upstream Author : Emery Berger <emery@cs.umass.edu>
* URL             : http://www.hoard.org/
* License         : GPL (with some docs under Apache 2.0)
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Fast, scalable, and efficient replacement memory allocator

Hoard is a replacement memory allocator that can be used instead of glibc
malloc without recompiling binaries.  It is faster and more efficient
under many load patterns than the default glibc malloc, and is particularly
good for multithreaded programs running on multiple processors.

I'm primarily packaging Hoard for use with OpenLDAP, where it increases
performance significantly over the default glibc allocator.

There are some papers included in the upstream source package under
non-free licenses which will be removed in the Debian package.
