  Description     : GnuCOBOL (formerly OpenCOBOL) is a free, modern COBOL

GnuCOBOL implements a substantial part of the COBOL 85, COBOL 2002 and
COBOL 2014
standards and X/Open COBOL, as well as many extensions included in other
compilers (IBM COBOL, MicroFocus COBOL, ACUCOBOL-GT and others).

This would replace the "open-cobol" in the archive, which is orphan since
4 Aug 2016 (#833460). The upstream project changed its name in 2013.
I need a sponsor because this is my first submission, and a pretty tough
one (contains libs, need to replace some packages and remove older one from
the archive, ...)
