Bug#907456: RFS: pslibrary/1.0.0-1 [ITP] -- library of ultrasoft and PAW pseudopotentials

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist
Control: block 907412 by -1

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "pslibrary".

* Package name    : pslibrary
  Version         : 1.0.0
  Upstream Author : Andrea Dal Corso
* URL             : https://dalcorso.github.io/pslibrary/
* License         : GPL-2+
  Description     : library of ultrasoft and PAW pseudopotentials

It builds these binary packages:
  pslibrary - library of ultrasoft and PAW pseudopotentials

PSlibrary is a library of scalar relativistic and fully relativistic PAW data
sets and ultrasoft pseudopotentials for many elements in Unified
Pseudopotential Format (UPF). UPFs can be used at least by Quantum ESPRESSO,
Abinit and GPAW.

PSlibrary paper [1] is widely cited (with ~60 citations during year 2018) [2]. 
The binary package consists of pseudopotentials built using Quantum ESPRESSO
from upstream-supplied inputs, resulting in ~3 GB of pseudopotential files
(~700 MB when compressed).

The package is not in the Mentors (due to #901025). The packaging is done in
Salsa repository [3] at and can be reviewed there.

I plan to maintain the package inside the DebiChem team.
