* Package name    : mpir
  Version         : 2.6.0
  Upstream Author : Torbjorn Granlund
* URL             : http://www.mpir.org/
* License         : LGPLv3+
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Multiple Precision Integers and Rationals library

This library is used by sage (http://www.sagemath.org) instead of gmp.

Notice that the debian-science repository has an mpir directory, but:

- it is for an older version of mpir ;
- as far as I know it doesn't follow the packaging guidelines (the 
debian work and the upstream sources are in the same branch, with 
commits intertwined)

so it's probably wiser to restart from scratch.

Thanks,

Snark on #debian-science
