  Description     : FITS to PNG image converter
   Fitspng is an utility intended to convert of the natural high 
   dynamic range of FITS images, directly representing measured data, 
   to the limited numerical range of PNG format widely used 
   in computer graphics. Fitspng implements a global tone mapping 
   technique by a set of tone functions using parameters provided 
   by user or by machine estimate on base of a robust count statistics. 
   Moreover, the conversion keeps an important FITS meta-information 
   as a text part of PNG header.

It will maintained within the Debian Astronomy Working Group. A git
repository will be created on alioth [1].
