   Package name: libformconv
        Version: 0.9.0

    Description: math formula converter library
Formconv is a general conversion library and tool between different
formats for math formulae. It currently supports intuitive (a simplified
Pascal-like syntax), MathML and LISP as input formats and lots of
different output formats (among the others: LaTeX, HTML, MuPAD,
Mathematica, Maple, Maxima, gnuplot, Java, C, MathML and LISP).

Formconv is mainly used in mathematics web applications to check the
input syntactically and convert it to various formats in order to work
on it by  other  programs: CAS or other mathematics tools. Although many
CAS are able to export formulas in various formats, formconv is known to
be faster and smaller as a general tool.  However, there are no official
statistics or benchmarking tests yet to show scientifically reliable
differences of efficiency of the export facility of the mathematical
systems and formconv.

This package is a dependendy of rtzme (bug #599623).

Ciao, Giovanni.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of libformconv back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

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

 retitle 608105 ITP: libformconv -- math formula converter library
 owner 608105 !
 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 <608105@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
