Bug#278868: ITP: aips -- Astronomical Image Processing System

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : aips
  Version         : 20041029
  Upstream Author : NRAO <aipsmail@nrao.edu>

  Description     : Astronomical Image Processing System from NRAO

 The Astronomical Image Processing System is a software package for
 calibration, data analysis, image display, plotting, and a variety of
 ancillary tasks on Astronomical Data. It comes from the National
 Radio Astronomy Observatory. It is primarily for Radio Astronomy.

Developers, this is a very large package.  I'm not even sure if its
appropriate for inclusion in Debian.  I will be keeping a copy in my
personal repository, along with all the other astronomy software.

At the moment I'm not even sure how large; it is meant to keep all the
source code along with the executables (and sync via cvs every night
via cron..).  The *source* targzball is 67M at 69% compression.  But
now I have to come up with a way to isolate the runtime files from the
install files (unfortunately not disjoint).

(The Debian version will not do the nightly CVS thing, btw).
