Bug#956113: ITP: pyqt5-sip -- SIP runtime module for use in PyQt5 and other projects

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Dmitry Shachnev <mitya57@debian.org>

* Package name    : pyqt5-sip
  Version         : 12.7.2
  Upstream Author : Riverbank Computing Limited <pyqt@riverbankcomputing.com>
* URL             : https://pypi.org/project/PyQt5-sip/
* License         : SIP or GPL-2 or GPL-3
  Programming Lang: C, C++, Python
  Description     : SIP run-time module for use in PyQt5 and other projects

Since SIP v5, upstream source consists of two parts:

- The build system, which is already packaged as python3-sipbuild.
- The runtime module, which the extensions built with SIP depend on.

Upstream allows every project to use their own copy of SIP runtime.
All projects from Riverbank Computing Ltd use a module named PyQt5.sip,
and we will recommend packages of other projects to change them to use
PyQt5.sip too.

Technically, both sipbuild and the runtime module are maintained in a
single upstream repository, but the build system is designed in a way
that PyQt5.sip should be built from a separate tarball.

I will maintain it under the umbrella of Debian Python Modules Team.
