Bug#725430: ITP: libxml-catalog-perl -- Perl module for resolving public and remapping system identifiers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Florian Schlichting <fsfs@debian.org>

* Package name    : libxml-catalog-perl
  Version         : 1.0.0
  Upstream Author : Jeff Fearn jfearn@cpan.org
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/XML-Catalog
* License         : GPL-1+
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Perl module for resolving public and remapping system identifiers

XML::Catalog implements draft 0.4 of John Cowan's XML Catalog (formerly
known as XCatalog) proposal Catalogs may be written in either SOCAT or
XML syntax; XML::Catalog will assume SOCAT syntax if the catalog is not
in well-formed XML syntax.
This module, as of 1.0.0, also supports Oasis XML catalogs.

libxml-catalog-perl used to be part of Debian until 2009, when it was
removed because it hadn't seen upstream releases in almost a decade, and
the draft spec it implemented had long been superseded (#519943). As of
version 1.0.0, it now supports the adopted "Oasis XML catalogs" spec,
and since it is a new dependency of libxml-treebuilder-perl, I have
decided to reintroduce it to Debian, this time under the umbrella of the
Debian Perl Team instead of the Debian XML/SGML Group, where it used to
be maintained by Ardo van Rangelrooij.
