   Description     : Parser for the metadata and data of an ECSV file

The Enhanced Character Separated Values format was developed within
the Astropy project and is described at APE6. It is composed of a
YAML header followed by a CSV-like body, and is intended to be a
human-readable and maybe even human-writable format with rich
metadata. Most of the useful per-column and per-table metadata is
preserved when de/serializing to this format. The version supported
by this reader is currently ECSV 1.0.

The package will be maintained by the Debian Astro team. It is part of
the effort to package the Virtual Observatory Java tools from Starlink.

A git repository will be created at


Best regards
