Bug#659947: RFS: portabase

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

Dear mentors,

New package "portabase" is looking for sponsor.

Portabase is a modern alternative to MobileDB (and to Jfile).

Use case: you're taking water samples and analyse them on spot
with portable colorimeter. Then you enter results to mobile 
version of portabase (I use my Nokia N900). 
Desktop version of this application comes handy to work 
with the data on workstation with full-size screen.

Also Portabase is useful to prepare data for mobile use.
