Bug#831408: ITP: bcolz -- compressed data container for NumPy

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Stender <stender@debian.org>

* Package name    : bcolz
  Version         : 1.1.0
  Upstream Author : Francesc Alted <francesc@blosc.org>
* URL             : https://github.com/Blosc/bcolz
* License         : BSD-3-Clause
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : compressed data container for NumPy

Bcolz [1] features data containers for NumPy, which are compressed
either on disk or also in-memory, and are accessible chunkwise [2]. For
compression it uses Blosc [3]. It has also import/export facilities for
HDF5 or PyTables data, and Pandas data frames.

I'm going to package this for the Debian Science Group. The binary is
going to be python3-bcolz (maybe also with Python 2 package).
