Bug#312698: ITP: urlgrabber -- advanced URL grabbing package for python

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Norbert Tretkowski <nobse@debian.org>

* Package name    : urlgrabber
  Version         : 2.9.6
  Upstream Author : Michael D. Stenner and Ryan Tomayko
* URL             : http://linux.duke.edu/projects/urlgrabber/
* License         : LGPL
  Description     : advanced URL grabbing package for python

Python package that drastically simplifies the fetching of files. It is
designed to be used in programs that need common (but not necessarily simple)
url-fetching features. It is extremely simple to drop into an existing program
and provides a clean interface to protocol-independant file-access. Best of
all, urlgrabber takes care of all those pesky file-fetching details, and lets
you focus on whatever it is that your program is written to do!

It came into existence as the part of yum that downloads rpms and header
files, but it quickly became clear that this is a general problem that many
applications must deal with.
