  Description     : Java library for the I/O handling of FITS files

FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) is the standard
data format in astronomy used for the transport, analysis,
and archival storage of scientific data sets.

This library provides efficient I/O for FITS images and
binary tables. All basic FITS formats and gzip compressed
files are supported.

This package is built in preparation to build TOPCAT (the
"Tool for OPerations on Catalogues And Tables").

A git repository has been created at
http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=debian-science/packages/fits.git .

Any kind of packaging help or comments on the current status of
this package is appreciated.
