[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : wxpdfdoc
  Version         : 0.9.4
  Upstream Author : Ulrich Telle <ulrich.telle@gmx.de>
* URL             : http://wxcode.sourceforge.net/components/wxpdfdoc/
* License         : (GPL, LGPL, BSD, MIT/X, etc.)
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : wxPdfDocument allows wxWidgets  generate PDF documents.

wxPdfDocument allows wxWidgets applications to generate PDF
documents. The code is a port of FPDF - a free PHP class for
generating PDF files - to C++ using the wxWidgets library. Several
add-on PHP scripts found on the FPDF web site are incorporated into
wxPdfDocument. Embedding of PNG, JPEG, GIF and WMF images is
supported. In addition to the 14 standard Adobe fonts it is possible
to use other Type1 or TrueType fonts - with or without embedding them
into the generated document. In Unicode build CJK fonts are supported,
too. Graphics primitives allow the creation of simple drawings.

I have a package which compiles and links its own copy of
this package (maitreya). It would be trivial to change it
to link to external library instead.

But I can't because I find no such package.

You're meant to fill in the licence actually used by the software here.

Looking at the website, it seems to be under the "wxWindows license".

I seem to be the only active member of the wxwidgets maintainers team
currently, and I'm sorry but I already have plenty on my plate with
sorting out the wx 2.9 situation with taking on packaging this too.

If you just need a sponsor for wxpdfdoc and can't find one elsewhere,
let me know and I can try to help.

Cheers,
    Olly
