  Version         : 0.1.0
  Upstream Author : Tim Jenness <t.jenness@jach.hawaii.edu>

  Description     : Position Astronomy Library
 This library is a collection of code designed to aid in
 replacing the SLA library with code from NOVAS and SOFA.
 Where possible the API is similar to the slalib
 except for the use of a "pal" prefix.

The goal of this package is to provide a modern alternative to the
slalib. Future versions of starlib-libast
<http://bugs.debian.org/657957> will be built using this library instead
of slalib <http://bugs.debian.org/659003>

This package is built in preparation to build saods9
