This is an interesting package I've never seen before, although even being
trained in aerodynamic and flight dynamics I'm feeling almost lost with the
user interface it provides ;-).
I read avl_doc.txt and session*.txt, but still not sure how to perform trivial
tasks like computing the elevating force and the drag of a given wing
profile. It seems I'm unable to enter or supply the values of: the profile
form and angle of attack coefficients (for both elevation and drag), air
density, air speed, and the wing area in square units.
Another problem I faced while was plotting sample *.avl files (for instance: I
did ../bin/avl wing, then OPER followed by G) is that the plotted image gets
rubbered off when I move other windows over it or when I partially move that
x11plot window out of my screen and then drag it back. Is this a known
problem with Xplot11 driver? I wish the GUI has been Qt/GTK/Wx, but
Other than that, you can remove the trailing dot from the short description as
suggested by policy and lintian, and extend the long description a little
