Bug#263830: ITP: idzebra -- general-purpose structured text indexing and retrieval engine

Here is a 'new' ITP (added to #263830). Without any reply from its
submitter, I will take over this ITP (no answer from my previous mail
since Jan 07 nor to the other mail from someone else on Apr 2006).

* Package name    : idzebra
  Version         : 2.0.22
  Upstream Author : Adam Dickmeiss, Heikki Levanto and Sebastian Hammer
                    (Index Data enterprise)
* URL             : http://www.indexdata.dk/zebra/
* License         : GPL (v2 or above)
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : general-purpose structured text indexing and retrieval engine
 IDZebra is a high-performance, general-purpose structured text indexing
 and retrieval engine. It reads structured records in a variety of input
 formats (eg. email, XML, MARC) and allows access to them through exact
 boolean search expressions and relevance-ranked free-text queries.

* upstream (Index Data enterprise) propose debian packages. I will start
  from their work. I will host development on git.alioth.org so these
  packages can be team-maintained if someone (upstream or not) want to
* upstream calls there packages idzebra, the software is called zebra,
  the tarball is called idzebra-....tar.gz in a /zebra/ directory.
  Unless strong objection, I plan to follow upstream and call the
  binary packages idzebra-* and source package idzebra
* zebra packaging is needed in order to package Koha (ITP #389876)
* zebra build-depends on libyaz3-dev that is not yet accepted in main
  due to licenses issues that should be resolved quickly by upstream
  (license change or, if not possible, rewrite of the little problematic
