Bug#440914: ITP: sketch -- produce 3D line drawings from scene description language

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@unb.ca>

* Package name    : sketch
  Version         : 0.2.9
  Upstream Author : Eugene Ressler
* URL             : http://www.frontiernet.net/~eugene.ressler
* License         : Unknown "Copyleft"
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     :  produce 3D line drawings from scene description language

Sketch is a simple system for producing line drawings of
three-dimensional objects and scenes. Sketch is intended to produce finely
wrought, mathematically-based illustrations with no extraneous detail
and be able to easily overlay TeX math and text. The input language is
reminiscent of PSTricks, so will be easy to learn for current PSTricks
users.  It generates either PSTricks or TikZ/PGF code as output.


On the website it states, 

   I've developed some tools while writing a textbook. They're good 
   enough to get real work done, so I'm offering them free under 

But there seems to be no explicit licensing information in the source. 
Obviously I need to figure this out before the package can be considered 
for inclusion in Debian.


There was another package named sketch; it seems to be gone now. If this 
is problematic, an alternative name could be sketch3d
