Re: ITP: skyfield -- Elegant astronomy for Python

Hi Antonio,

I took the freedom to enable Salsa-CI on jplephem, and added the ASCL Id
to d/u/metadata.

Thanks a lot.
I didn't know about the the ASCL Id.
I will add it also the Skyfield metadata.

One question: How is jplephem related to the data files? Does it
strictly need them? And would it make sense to describe how one can get the data
files and where to store them?

I have added a README.Debian file to the package, including some additional information about where to get JPL ephemeris files and relevant links.

Otherwise, this package looks fine to me.

Please feel free to go ahead.

Dear Antonio,
this is great news, thank you for your efforts!
I'd be happy to review your packages and upload them. For
simplicity, I
also just created the projects on Salsa and made you owner (you should
have received notifications).
Please ping me once you uploaded the packages.

Thanks a lot.
Just pushed the source code of both jplephem and skyfield.

Dear all,
I have prepared a debian package for skyfield [1] and one of its
dependencies jplephem [2].
The ITP issues are [#911646] and [#1017350].
Source packages are available on mentors.d.n.

I'm a DM and I would like to maintain the packages under debian astro
(as suggested in [#911646]).
If there is no objection I would appreciate if someone in the debian
astro could review the packages and sponsor the initial upload.

I would like to put the git repositories for both packages on salsa.
I think that I have permission to do it myself but I do not remember
if there is any specific procedure for creating new repositories in
the debian-astro group.
Could please someone provide a link to the relevant documentation?
