  Description     : a lightweight GHC library for Perl 5 compatible regular expressions

  The PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular expression
  pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics as Perl 5.

  P.S.  This package is required for the syntax highlighting support of pandoc.

Being lecc cryptic would help, here.

I suggest expanding "GHC" if possible, at the expense of "Perl 5"
"lightweight" and/or "compatible".

s/a // would of course be my next suggestion..

(Steve, no need to repeat that you disagree with DevRef 6.2.2 on that
matter..:-))

Subject: pcre-light: changing back from ITP to RFP
Date: Mon, 24 May 2010 19:06:09 +0000
retitle 464901 RFP: pcre-light -- a lightweight GHC library for Perl 5 compatible regular expressions
noowner 464901
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of pcre-light back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 18 months.

If you are still interested in adopting pcre-light, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 464901 ITP: pcre-light -- a lightweight GHC library for Perl 5 compatible regular expressions
 owner 464901 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <464901@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team
