Bug#803015: ITP: glimpse -- search quickly through entire file systems

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Alexander Zangerl <az@debian.org>

* Package name    : glimpse
  Version         : 4.18.6
  Upstream Author : Golda Velez <gvelez@webglimpse.net>
* URL             : http://webglimpse.net/
* License         : ISC, simplified BSD
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : search quickly through entire file systems

  Glimpse, which stands for GLobal IMPlicit SEarch, is a very popular
	UNIX indexing and query system that allows you to search through a
  large set of files very quickly. Glimpse supports most of agrep's
  options (agrep is our powerful version of grep) including approximate
  matching (e.g., finding misspelled words), Boolean queries, and even
  some limited forms of regular expressions.

glimpse was present in non-free until 2008, as the license at that
time wasn't DFSG-compatible (see #474323).
upstream has switched the license to the ISC/simplified BSD in 2014,
and glimpse should thus fit nicely into main.
