  Description     : Fast and flexible Static Site Generator written in Go

 Hugo is a static site generator written in Go. It is optimized for speed,
 ease of use, and configurability. Hugo takes a directory with content and
 templates, and renders them into a full HTML website.
 Hugo relies on Markdown files with front matter for meta data. And you
 can run Hugo from any directory. This works well for shared hosts and
 other systems where you don’t have a privileged account.
 Hugo renders a typical website of moderate size in a fraction of a
 second. A good rule of thumb is that each piece of content renders in
 around 1 millisecond.
 Hugo is meant to work well for any kind of website including blogs,
 tumblelogs and docs.
 Complete documentation is available at http://gohugo.io/ .

Reason for packaging:

 Hugo is among the top five static site generators according to
 http://www.staticgen.com/ .  It is the fastest among them all,
 is under active development from many contributors,
 and is quickly gaining popularity.
 I think Hugo would be a handy tool and worthy addition to Debian.
