Bug#768968: ITP: pyuca -- Python implementation of the Unicode Collation Algorithm (UTS-10)

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Stender <debian@danielstender.com>

* Package name    : pyuca
  Version         : 1.0
  Upstream Author : James Tauber <jtauber@jtauber.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/jtauber/pyuca
* License         : Expat, Unicode-TOU
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Python implementation of the Unicode Collation Algorithm (UTS-10)

This is a Python implementation of the UCA (Unicode Collation Algorithm) [1,2],
which provides features for the sorting of Unicode alphabets, e.g.
multiple leveling, contraction and expansion.

The module is written for Python 3, and the name of the binary package
would be python3-pyuca.

The upstream package includes pyuca/allkeys.txt (originally: unidata-6.3.0.txt),
which defines the Default Unicode Collation Element Table (DUCET), which
underlies the Unicode Terms of Use (Unicode-TOU) [3], which is listed
on the SPDX License list [4].
