Bug#979197: ITP: distance -- Python library for comparing sequences

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julian Gilbey <jdg@debian.org>

* Package name    : distance
  Version         : 0+git20131122.ad7f9dc
  Upstream Author : Michaël Meyer
* URL             : https://github.com/doukremt/distance

  Programming Lang: Python (with a disabled C library)
  Description     : Python library for comparing sequences

 This package provides helpers for computing similarities between
 arbitrary sequences. Included metrics are Levenshtein, Hamming,
 Jaccard, and Sorensen distance, plus some bonuses. The distance
 computations are implemented in pure Python.

 This package is needed as a build dependency for
 python3-textdistance, which is a much more comprehensive Python
 package for calculating the distance between sequences.

 This package is a (recursive) dependency of the new Spyder 4.x
 series, hence the need to package it.

 There is an included C library which is optional but broken and so
 has been disabled.

 This package will be maintained within the Debian Python Team.
