This is a scientific visualization package for examining output files
generated by the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package, a package for
performing ab-initio quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics using
pseudopotentials and a plane wave basis set. The project was initiated
when a chemical engineering professor requested assitance in visualizing
output files produced by the above package. It displays iso-surfaces and
slices of a three-dimensional data set, along with the atoms that make
up the molecule the calculations were performed for, and allows symbolic
bonds to be inserted between them.

 - starting review -

Few notes: 
* vendor field should remains empty
desktop-file-install --vendor="" \

* Why there is no dist macro for the release tag ?

* last source is 2001/08, this is old. (but it still work without patch, unless
for the missing  "no newline at end of file" which doesn't seems to matter much
for now).
There could be a problem to package software when upstream is dead, as this
package could be improved (it cannot open a dialog window when opening a file).
Visualization remains hard, etc.

* The source tarball used, bundles a pre-built binary for win32. It have to be

So there may be one suggestion. I wonder if the project could be merged with
GLC_player. That's a 3D model visualization tool for the obj format. Anyway i
think it worst the case to ask... Note that if the package is useful as it is, I
don't see any blocker by itself...
