Bug#890363: ITP: sfnt2woff-zopfli -- Create WOFF files with Zopfli compression

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Paride Legovini <pl@ninthfloor.org>

* Package name    : sfnt2woff-zopfli
  Version         : 1.1.0
  Upstream Author : Bram Stein <b.l.stein@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/bramstein/sfnt2woff-zopfli
* License         : Apache and (MPL or GPL or LGPL)
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Create WOFF files with Zopfli compression

This is a modified version of the sfnt2woff utility that uses Zopfli as
a compression algorithm instead of zlib. This results in compression
gains of, on average, 5-8% compared to regular WOFF files. Zopfli
generates compressed output that is compatible with regular zlib
compression so the resulting WOFF files can be used everywhere.

This package provides two tools:
 * sfnt2woff-zopfli: convert OpenType fonts to WOFF
 * woff2sfnt-zopfli: convert WOFF fonts to OpenType

sfnt2woff-zopfli is a build-dependency for a newer version of another
package I maintain: fonts-hack.

I plan to maintain it in the Debian Fonts team.
I will need a sponsor for the upload.
