Bug#962866: ITP: openjson -- rewrite of the evil licensed json.org

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sudip Mukherjee <sudipm.mukherjee@gmail.com>
Control: block 943552 by -1

* Package name    : openjson
  Version         : v1.0.12
  Upstream Author : many
* URL             : https://github.com/openjson/openjson
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: java
  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[1].

 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.
