  Description     : OpenJUMP is an open source Geographic Information System (GIS) written in Java

I would like to have OpenJUMP GIS packaged for Debian (and included in
Wheezy, if possible). OpenJUMP 1.0 was included in Lenny, but it was removed
from archive in last May (reason: Obsolete and newer versions have problems
with license. Also currently FTBS.) Is there still license trouble?

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
A few comments on the proposed description synopsis:

> Subject: RFP: openjump -- OpenJUMP is an open source Geographic Information
> 	System
> 	(GIS) written in Java

"OpenJUMP is": should be omitted as this is implied (see Developer's
Reference)

"open source": this is Debian, so everything in main is "open source"

"written in Java": users don't really care, at least in the
synopsis. May be a mention in the long description

That leaves use with:

Geographic Information System (GIS)

....eventually even dropping capitals (This Is Not German..:-))... And
Yes I Know Only Nouns Take Capitals In German)

Maybe, then adding room for a few words about what makes OpenJUMP
specific wrt other GIS....
