Bug#913766: ITP: librsvg-c -- the pre-Rust version of librsvg

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, glaubitz@physik.fu-berlin.de
Owner: jbicha@debian.org

Package Name: librsvg-c
Version: 2.40.20
Upstream Authors: Ximian, Eazel, Red Hat, Igalia, etc.
License : LGPL-2+
Programming Lang: C
Homepage: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/LibRsvg
Description: SAX-based renderer library for SVG files
 The rsvg library is an efficient renderer for Scalable Vector Graphics
 (SVG) pictures.

Other Info
As requested, this is librsvg reintroduced for ports that don't
supported the rustified librsvg yet. The name is because this is
librsvg written in the C programming language (instead of in Rust).

Packaging can be found at https://salsa.debian.org/gnome-team/librsvg-c

Currently, the packaging builds the same binary package names as
src:librsvg. There was a suggestion to use different binary names with
versioned Provides (against the existing librsvg binary package
names). I'm not sure that provides much benefit but we can discuss

I don't have the ability to do the initial upload for this package
since I don't have easy access to do the binary build required for
ftp-master NEW.

I don't have experience with archive management for non-release
architectures at all.
