Bug#478251: ITP: libdata-stag-perl -- Structured Tags datastructures

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Charles Plessy <plessy@debian.org>

  Package name    : libdata-stag-perl
  Version         : 0.10
  Upstream Author : Chris Mungall <cjm AT fruitfly DOT org>
  URL             : http://stag.sourceforge.net
  License         : Artistic | GPL-1+ (same terms as perl itself)
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Structured Tags datastructures

 This module is for manipulating data as hierarchical tag/value
 pairs (Structured TAGs or Simple Tree AGgreggates). These
 datastructures can be represented as nested arrays, which have the
 advantage of being native to perl. A simple example is shown below:
 [ person=> [  [ family_name => $family_name ],
 [ given_name  => $given_name  ],
 [ phone_no    => $phone_no    ] ] ],
 Data::Stag uses a subset of XML for import and export. This
 means the module can also be used as a general XML parser/writer (with
 certain caveats).

The packaging is mostly the work of David Paleino and is almost finished.

I am finishing to polish the details, and will sponsor the package after
getting the green light from David and the Debian Perl team. This package is
needed for libgo-perl, that is needed for a biological format (GFF3) validator.
