Bug#439107: ITP: xpn -- GTK+ based news reader

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Krauss <mickraus@googlemail.com>

* Package name    : xpn
  Version         : 0.7.0
  Upstream Author : Antonio Caputo <nemesis2001@gmx.it>
* URL             : http://xpn.altervista.org/index-en.html
* License         : GPL v2
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : GTK+ based news reader

After using XPN myself for a year now, i think it's time to
make it available in debian.

XPN is written in python. By default it is not intended to be
installed, but to be started directly out of its directory.  Thus i
have written a start script that preserves as many command line
parameters of the original program as possible and let XPN behave like
a Unix Tool should behave. Furthermore i added an .desktop file and
converted the program icon to xpm.

Next i will upload the package on mentors.debian.net.
I hope this is the right procedure, following

Kind Regards,
Michael Krauss
