Bug#705075: ITP: googlizer -- search the web for the contents of your X clipboad

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Tobias Richter <tsr-debian@achos.com>

This package that I really like was first orphaned and then removed, 
without me noticing. In case an ITP is not the correct procedure at 
this point, please advise.

The reason for removal was "RoQA; orphaned, better alternatives exist".
GNOME shell was named as the "better alternative". On LXDE there is no 
parallel functionality as far as I am aware.

I am aware that upstream isn't active, but given that we are talking 
about 105 lines of C code this shouldn't be a problem. There are no 
known bugs, only the packaging needs to be updated.

* Package name    : googlizer
  Version         : 0.3
  Upstream Author : Alan Cox 
* URL             : ftp://ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/alan/Software/Gnome/Googlizer
* License         : GPLv2
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : search the web for the contents of your X clipboad

 This is a very simple and very handy utility that just spawns the
 configured browser with a Google search on whatever you have in the 
 X clipboard (whatever you last selected). It's not even an applet,
 just a program with a launcher that's nice to put on the panel - drag
 it there from the menu. It also includes support for a command line
 option -u/--url, to specify an alternative URL to which the search
 should be appended before opening.
