Re: r3798 - /projects/science/trunk/debian-science/tasks/astronomy

Hi Ole,

thanks for updating the astronomy task.  In the case of iraf you did
some work which is duperflous / ignored.  Due to the fact that iraf
is just in VCS[1] all information can be obtained from there and there
is no point in duplicating it here (and it is actually ignored here
once it is found in VCS).  The only information that is not obtained
from VCS is the WNPP bug.  The parser is locking for something like


which in this case can not be found.  So it might make sense to either
leave the WNPP bug number in the astronomy task file or to use something

  Initial reupload after it was removed ...

or so.

Following this logic I would suggest to inject the packaging for x11iraf
and pyraf in a "short time frame" into VCS and just leave the package
names inside the tasks file.  The purpose is to do the least amount of
duplicated work for you.

BTW, at these circumstances it always comes to mind to also parse WNPP
bugs.  This has not happened yet vor various reasons and was mentioned
several times.

Kind regards and thanks again for your work on this
