Bug#1019436: ITP: jarowinkler -- fast approximate string matching using Jaro(-Winkler) similarity

Package: wnpp

* Package name    : jarowinkler
  Version         : 1.2.1

  Description     : Fast approximate string matching using Jaro(-Winkler) similarity

JaroWinkler is a Python library to calculate the Jaro and Jaro-Winkler
similarity. It is easy to use, is much faster than other comparable
libraries, and is designed to integrate seemingless with RapidFuzz.

There is also a C++ library contained within this package, managed as
a separate GitHub subrepository.  This is jarowinkler-cpp, and I am not
sure whether to bundle this as a single package or whether to package
this independently.

This is a dependency of python3-rapidfuzz, which is a new dependency
of the latest upstream release of python3-textdistance.

This package will be maintained within the Python Packaging Team.
