Generic Mapping Tools (GMT)
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Name: Generic Mapping Tools (GMT)
Homepage: http://gmt.soest.hawaii.edu/projects/gmt/wiki
Why should this be included in the repository? GMT is a tool to manipulate geographic and Cartesian data sets, which is widely used in Earth Science related contexts. It is a necesary tool that keeps me using Ubuntu in academic contexts instead of Solus, so I'm pretty sure that this happens to other users as well.
Is it Open Source? YES
How many users do you anticipate will use this software? All academic users that work in Earth Sciences, we are not a ton but hard core users willing to contribute too.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for about 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
