Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Is anybody interested in packaging Gradint?  It's GPL v3
and it requires python (2.x), and virtually requires sox
and libsox-fmt-all.  Recommended (highly) is espeak and python-tk.

It's a learning tool for creating vocabulary practice sessions
using the "graduated-interval recall" memory technique.
Please see http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/ssb22/gradint/
Packaging might simply be a matter of renaming gradint.py
and putting it into /usr/bin, but I'm happy to make changes
to the way Gradint runs if needed.

Packages to put in its "suggested" list might include:
  - python-tksnack (for recording);
  - mpg123, mpg321, madplay, or mplayer (if sox doesn't have MP3 support);
  - unzip (for installing the optional extra voice data);
  - gzip (if you want your progress files to be compressed);
  - festival or flite (if espeak is not available);
  - lame, faac, oggenc, toolame, or speexenc (for non-realtime output);
  - leafpad, gedit, nedit, kedit or xedit (text editors)
but none of these are really required.

The additional voice data for Mandarin and Cantonese
(downloaded from the link in the sidebar) would increase
the package size rather a lot; perhaps that should be
optional (if it's included at all).

Thanks.

Silas
