Bug#749340: RFA: nodebox-web -- collection of web-related Python modules

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the nodebox-web package.

I packaged it several years ago because it was needed for another package, one
that is not in the Debian archive anymore. nodebox-web has low popcon and no
rdepends, so adopt it only if you (plan to) use it yourself.

I intend to request its removal from the archive if nobody steps up within a
few weeks.

The package description is:
 Nodebox Web is a collection of Python modules to get content from the web.
 One can query Yahoo! and Google for links, images, news and spelling
 suggestions, read RSS and Atom newsfeeds, retrieve articles from Wikipedia,
 collect quality images from morgueFile or Flickr, browse through HTML
 documents, clean up HTML, validate URLs, and create GIF images from math
 equations using mimeTeX.
 The library uses a caching mechanism that stores things you download from the
 web, so they can be retrieved faster the next time. Many of the services also
 work asynchronously.
