Bug#845332: ITP: casacore-data-sources -- Table of ICRF reference source coordinates for casacore

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

* Package name    : casacore-data-sources
  Version         : 1 or 2
* URL             : https://www.iers.org/IERS/EN/DataProducts/ICRF/icrf.html

  Description     : Table of ICRF reference source coordinates for casacore

 This package contains a table with the sources that realize the
 and the International Celestial Reference Frame (ICRF), as a table for
 the use with casacore. The ICRF is now the standard reference frame
 used to define the positions of the planets (including the Earth) and
 other astronomical objects.

The package is a part of the effort taken by Benda Xu and me within the
Debian Astro team to split up the original "casacore-data" package (RFP
#761146) by data source into smaller packages which can be maintained

It is still undecided if we take ICRF1 (1998; 608 sources) or
ICRF2 (2007; 3414 sources).

The package will be maintained on our git repository under


Best regards
