* Package name    : python-ssdeep
  Version         : 2.9-0.2
  Upstream Author : Philipp Seidel
* URL             : https://github.com/DinoTools/python-ssdeep
* License         : GPL-2
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : cython wrapper for libfuzzy

Long description from upstream:

| This is a straightforward Python wrapper for ssdeep by Jesse Kornblum,
| which is a library for computing context triggered piecewise hashes
| (CTPH). Also called fuzzy hashes, CTPH can match inputs that have
| homologies. Such inputs have sequences of identical bytes in the same
| order, although bytes in between these sequences may be different in
| both content and length.

Note that upstream embeds a copy of ssdeep. This package will use the
system libfuzzy instead.

Helmut

You can find a work-in-progress .debian.tar.gz attached to this mail.
Thanks to Jakub Wilk for his extensive reviews. There are still some
issues that I would like to address upstream, so I put this ITP on hold
for now. In the meantime I forked[1] ssdeep to show how to address some
of the issues and contacted both upstreams about it.
