Bug#508777: ITP: libicu4j-java -- Library for unicode support and internalisation

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tillea@rki.de>

* Package name    : libicu4j-java
  Version         : 3.8.1
  Upstream Author : IBM and contributors
* URL             : http://www.icu-project.org/
* License         : ICU4J license - ICU4J 1.8.1 and later
   Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining
   a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the
   "Software"), to deal in the Software without restriction, including
   without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish,
   distribute, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons
   to whom the Software is furnished to do so, provided that the above
   copyright notice(s) and this permission notice appear in all copies of

  Programming Lang: C, C++, Java
  Description     : Library for unicode support and internalisation
 ICU is a mature, widely used set of C/C++ and Java libraries for
 Unicode support, software internationalization and globalization
 (i18n/g11n). It grew out of the JDK 1.1 internationalization APIs, which
 the ICU team contributed, and the project continues to be developed
 for the most advanced Unicode/i18n support. ICU is widely portable and
 gives applications the same results on all platforms and between C/C++
 and Java software.

Remark: This software is currently provided inside the source package
 of eclipse.  There is no clear reason why it is tied into another packages
 upstream version.  Moreover there is a seperate package maintained in
 Ubuntu and thus it is simple to "steal" this package.  The packaging
 stuff is available in SVN via

Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-java/trunk/icu4j
Vcs-Browser: http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-java/trunk/icu4j/?rev=0&sc=0

Kind regards
