Owner: Dominique Lasserre <lasserre.d@gmail.com>

* Package name    : finalterm
  Version         : pre-alpha

  Description     : Modern terminal emulator

Final Term is a "new breed of terminal emulator" with some interesting
functionality (see the homepage for details and images):
    - semantic text menus (easily extendible)
    - built-in command completion (currently suggestions from history)
    - GUI terminal controls (detection of ASCII scrollbars, collapse of
    - dynamic line wrapping on terminal resize
    - extended keybinding support (local/global) (easily extendible)
    - colorscheme support

Final Term currently does not built on a clean Debian box cause of it's
libkeybinder-3.0 (not packaged), mx-1.0 and some clutter dependencies
(linked libcogl is too old) but since finalterm is yet not stable enough
for the archive (it indeed hasn't released already) this ITP will show
there is something in progress to prepare it for Debian.

Project code is hosted on Github:

Some Debian packaging code (not lintian clean) is hosted on Launchpad
(to provide an Ubuntu PPA):

I'll push some code to mentors.net once Final Term releases.
