Description : rewrite of the evil licensed json.org
Json.org is a popular java library to parse and create json string from
the author of the json standard Douglas Crockford. His implementation however
is not free software.
The Android team did a cleanroom reimplementation of a json library and
this package has extended the implementation done by the Android team.
I need a json library for #943552 and the libandroid-json-org-java that
we have in Debian has not implemented all the methods that tracecompass
uses. I can modify the tracecompass code to use libandroid-json-org-java
but using this 'openjson' is a cleaner implementation, without the need
to modify original code.
I can maintain the package under the umbrella of java-team.
