Feature #309470, revision 1
Title: Add ConvertAll to repository

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Ricardo Gabriel Berlasso (rgbsuse)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
ConvertAll (http://convertall.bellz.org/index.html) is not just another unit
conversion tool, ConvertAll is THE unit conversion tool because it is not
limited to a list of units: you can build any combination you need.

From the site:  With ConvertAll, you can combine the units any way you want.
If you want to convert from inches per decade, that's fine. Or from
meter-pounds. Or from cubic nautical miles. The units don't have to make sense
to anyone else.

Use Case:
Students, teachers, researchers, engineers... anyone who need to perform
bizarre unit conversion on a daily basis will find this app really useful.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: ConvertAll is a really useful tiny app. Written in py-qt and
ready for translation through .po files it is really easy to use and very
flexible. Even if it is really easy to install, I'm not sure how many people
know this app: having it on repos will help not only to promote it, but also
will help many people who need it but do not know its existence.
