Bug#797720: ITP: python-ly -- Tool and Python library for manipulating LilyPond files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Anthony Fok <foka@debian.org>

* Package name    : python-ly
  Version         : 0.9.2
  Upstream Author : Wilbert Berendsen <wbsoft (AT) xs4all.nl>
* URL             : https://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-ly
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Tool and Python library for manipulating LilyPond files

 This package provides a Python library `ly` containing various Python
 modules to parse, manipulate or create documents in LilyPond format.
 A command line program `ly` is also provided that can be used to do various
 manipulations with LilyPond files.
 The LilyPond format is a plain text input format that is used by the
 GNU music typesetter LilyPond (www.lilypond.org).

 1. Why is this package useful/relevant?  Is it a dependency for
    another package?

    Answer: python-ly is needed for the Qt4-based LilyPond sheet music editor
    Frescobaldi 2.18 and above, which I intend to upload after python-ly
    is accepted.  Debian currently has frescobaldi-2.17.2 where the
    functionality of python-ly was not yet separated out.

 2. How do you plan to maintain it?  Inside a packaging team?

    Yes, I intend to join the Debian Python Modules Team (DPMT)
    to have the python-ly source package reside on Alioth.
    Frescobaldi, which I co-maintain, is already inside the
    Python Applications Packaging Team (PAPT).
