Bug#793461: astrometry.net -- Astrometry plate solver

Package: wnpp
Owner: Ole Streicher <olebole@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-devel@lists.debian.org,debian-astro@lists.debian.org

* Package name    : astrometry.net
  Version         : 0.56
  Upstream Author : David W. Hogg, Dustin Lang
* URL             : http://www.astrometry.net/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : Astrometry plate solver
 The astrometry engine will take any image and return the astrometry
 world coordinate system (WCS), a standards-based description of the
 transformation between image coordinates and sky coordinates.

This package already exists in Ubuntu [1]; however it needs some substantial
polishing before it can enter Debian. The Ubuntu package authors have no own
interest in packaging, therefore I take this over. Discussion with upstream
is just started in their google forum [2].

The package will be maintained within the Debian Astronomy Team.

Best regards
