Bug#776654: ITP: avro-java -- Apache Avro data serialization system

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Emmanuel Bourg <ebourg@apache.org>

* Package name    : avro-java
  Version         : 1.7.7
  Upstream Author : The Apache Software Foundation
* URL             : http://avro.apache.org
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: Java
  Description     : Apache Avro data serialization system

Apache Avro is a data serialization system providing:
  * Rich data structures.
  * A compact, fast, binary data format.
  * A container file, to store persistent data.
  * Remote procedure call (RPC).
  * Simple integration with dynamic languages. Code generation is not required
    to read or write data files nor to use or implement RPC protocols. Code
    generation as an optional optimization, only worth implementing
    for statically typed languages.

Upstream support multiple languages but this package will only focus
on the Java part which is required to package Hadoop.
