Description : Reads one dimensional barcodes and QR codes in python using libzbar
It is a pure python package that works with PIL / Pillow images,
OpenCV / numpy arrays and raw bytes.
I have noticed there is python3-zbar available already, but I do not
know how these two packages compare, since I am using it as a dependency
and therefore do not have the choice of switching to python3-zbar.
I have already packaged pyzbar for a downstream project called Mobian
and wish to have it packaged for debian itself.
This python module is a dependency for the authenticator app (see
ITP #958555). I plan maintaining it through the python modules team.
I do need a sponsor.
