Bug#522142: ITP: Qoreutils -- Coreutils reimplemented using Qt libraries

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sune Vuorela <reportbug@pusling.com>

* Package name    : Qoreutils
  Version         : 1.0.0
  Upstream Author : John Doe <john@qoreutils.org>
* URL             : http://www.qoreutils.org/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++ with Qt
  Description     : Coreutils reimplemented using Qt libraries

Qoreutils is a reimplementation of the classic tools from coreutils,
such as ls, mkdir and cp

I'm packaging this on behalf of the Debian Qt/KDE maintainers as a first
step towards making the Qt libraries Essential: yes and on the way to
take over the world.

Currently, the package will dpkg-divert all the implemented tools of
coreutils to shake out any remaining bugs and if any bugs found,  the
user can fall back to command.coreutils as a last way out. Within the
next couple of months, it will instead have replace/conflict/provides
coreutils and slowly push out coreutils from the most users machines.
