Re: [Debian-astro-maintainers] Erin Sheldon's fitsio,package

Hi Klaus,

You should just test this with a normal (x86) Jessie, not on an embedded
system. If it works, just push the changes into a branch
"debian/jessie-backports" on our git repository


and notify me. I will then check and upload.

What concerns Stretch, we are in the way to make it stable. If you find
anything that does not work, please file a bug. That is the best way to
get it rock-solid :-)

Best regards
