  Description     : wxWidgets Cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit (wxPython binding)

wxWidgets (formerly known as wxWindows) is a class library for C++
providing GUI components and other facilities on several popular
platforms.

This package provides a Python binding to the wxGTK library and the
wxPython runtime support libraries.


[To pre-answer the "isn't this already packaged" questions, we used to
build wxpython out of the wxwidgets2.8 source package (which actually
contained wxpython sources with an embedded copy of wxwidgets!)  The
wxwidgets3.0 source package is just the wxwidgets source, and we're
packaging wxpython 3.0 from a separate source package.]

There's already an ITP for wxpython3.0, which is the appropriate place
for discussion of packaging wxpython3.0:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=734799

If you want to make it happen sooner, help is most welcome (I seem to be
the only active member of the wx maintainer team currently, and I don't
have infinite time to devote to it).  I'm also not a heavy python user
and don't use wxpython myself.

One pending issue is some non-DFSG files, which I asked upstream about
(no response yet):

http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/15917

I suspect we'll end up having to repack again, but I was hoping upstream
would clean up the non-DFSG files as they have for wxwidgets itself.

Cheers,
    Olly
