Bug #789081: ITP: coyote -- GDL library from D.Fannings IDL courses

Package: wnpp
Owner: Ole Streicher <olebole@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : coyote
  Version         :
  Upstream Author : David Fanning
* URL             : http://www.idlcoyote.com
* License         : BSD-3
  Programming Lang: GDL (IDL)
  Description     : GDL library from D.Fannings IDL courses
 The Coyote Library evolved from work David Fanning was doing teaching
 IDL courses and answering IDL questions on the IDL newsgroup. It is
 meant to be a well-documented library that demonstrates how to write
 solid (dare we say eloquent) GDL/IDL programs that are easy to
 maintain and extend.

The software is written for the commercial language "IDL", but works in
large parts with GDL as well. Since I don't have much experience with
GDL/IDL, any input, help, co-maintenance or even taking over the
packaging is appreciated.

The main motivation to create this package is to extend the idlastro

The software will be maintained within te Debian Astronomy Team.
A git repository is created on alioth at


The package will *require* gnudatalanguage. Feel free to start a
discussion if this is a good idea and or if and how the commercial
package (IDL) should be supported.

Best regards


P.S. x-debbugscc went wrong; therefore I manually re-sent this with the
