Bug#918796: ITP: yorick-full -- full installation of the Yorick interpreter and add-ons

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Thibaut Paumard <thibaut@debian.org>

* Package name    : yorick-full
  Version         : 2.2.04+dfsg1+full
  Upstream Author : Thibaut Paumard <thibaut@debian.org>
* URL             : http://yorick.sourceforge.net
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: None (metapackage)
  Description     : full installation of the Yorick interpreter and add-ons

This binary package is currently built by the yorick source package with the
severe drawback that any RC bug in any yorick add-on immediately makes the full
Yorick system RC buggy. I'm splitting this metapackage out of the yorick source
package to alleviate that.

This is the long description:
 Yorick is an interpreted programming language for:
  * scientific simulations or calculations
  * postprocessing or steering large simulation codes
  * interactive scientific graphics
  * reading, writing, and translating large files of numbers
 The yorick-full metapackage installs Yorick together with the full set
 of add-ons packaged for Debian.
 You may prefer to only install the yorick package and cherry-pick the
 yorick-* add-ons you need.
 If you need MPY, the MPI parallel version of Yorick, please install
 either yorick-mpy-openmpi or yorick-mpy-mpich2 in addition.
