Bug#543648: ITP: prophet -- distributed database system

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Christine Spang <christine@debian.org>

* Package name    : prophet
  Version         : 0.70
  Upstream Author : Jesse Vincent <jesse@bestpractical.com>
* URL             : http://syncwith.us/
* License         : Perl (Artistic | GPL-1+)
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : distributed, peer to peer replicated database system

 Prophet is a new kind of database designed for the post Web-2.0 world.
 It's made to let you collaborate with your friends and coworkers without
 needing any kind of special server or internet provider.
 Prophet's buzzword-laden pitch reads something like this:
     A grounded, semirelational, peer to peer replicated, disconnected,
     versioned, property database with self-healing conflict resolution. 
 What that really means is that Prophet keeps your data in your control,
 not on a server in a cloud, is designed for online and offline use,
 syncs changes peer to peer in any way you can think of, and has a
 pluggable conflict resolution system that allows application writers to
 decide how to resolve conflicts during synchronization, using Prophet's
 algorithm or any other.
 If you're not a programmer, you likely want an end-user application
 build on top of Prophet, rather than this package.
