Bug#789622: ITP: netcdf-cxx-legacy -- legacy NetCDF C++ interface

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ross Gammon <rossgammon@mail.dk>

* Package name    : netcdf-cxx-legacy
  Version         : 4.2
  Upstream Author : University
Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Unidata
* URL             : http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/
* License         : NetCDF
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : legacy NetCDF C++ interface

 NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for scientific
 data access and a freely-distributed software library that provides an
 implementation of the interface.  The netCDF library also defines a
 machine-independent format for representing scientific data.
 Together, the interface, library, and format support the creation,
 access, and sharing of scientific data.
 This version of the netCDF C++ library is provided for backwards compatibility
 as a separate package. It was developed before key C++ concepts like
 namespaces, and exceptions were widely supported. It's not recommended for new
 projects, but it still works.
 This package contains the legacy C++ shared libraries.

This package will ease the transition to the latest netcdf-cxx package in
Debian, by allowing reverse dependencies that still depend on the old netCDF
C++ library to utilise this legacy package instead.

The package will be maintained within the Debian GIS Team.
