Bug#686322: ITP: libgoffice -- Document centric objects library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

   Package name: libgoffice
        Version: 0.9.5
Upstream Author: gnome.org
            URL: http://git.gnome.org/browse/goffice/
        License: GPL-2 or GPL-3
    Description: Document centric objects library
                 GOffice is a library of document centric objects
                 and utilities building on top of GLib and Gtk+.

This is a new version of a library. 
Many Gnome Office applications i.e. Gnumeric, AbiWord, GnuCash etc. will be 
eventually linking to the new goffice library hence this is the effort to make 
it available.
Implementation allow both libraries to co-exist gracefully and therefore  
avoid transition and allow graceful decommission of goffice-0.8.

This year old library version 0.8 was NMUed twice and there is no evidence of 
maintainer activity since August 2011.

I got no reply from maintainer since February 2012 when I emailed to him  
offering help with packaging new version.

Also there is a corresponding wishlist #660182 which was not updated and no 
estimation for possible availability given.

I forked the existing package and almost completely repackaged it.
