Package: wnpp

* Package name: npapi-sdk
Version: 0.27
* URL: http://code.google.com/p/npapi-sdk/

* License: MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1

NPAPI-SDK is the bundle of NPAPI headers lately decoupled from Mozilla
sources. Although the original upstream project is all concerned about
bundling live sources, we [Gentoo Mozilla team] are adding a build
system, pkg-config file and packaging releases of it.

Thanks to that, NPAPI-SDK project becomes a good and tiny alternative to
complete Mozilla install for many NPAPI plugins which currently are
built against xulrunner or Mozilla. And unlike those, aims to provide
versioned API to make handling changes to it less painful.

Building against NPAPI-SDK is already supported by icedtea-web and
freewrl Mozilla plugins, and we're working on bringing its support to
other packages. State of the support can be found in our wiki:
- https://github.com/mgorny/npapi-sdk/wiki/NPAPI-SDK-migration

We'd really appreciate having our little package supported by Debian as
well.
