  Description     : Toolkit for assembling FITS images into mosaics
 Montage is a toolkit for assembling astronomical images into custom mosaics.
 It uses algorithms that preserve the calibration and positional (astrometric)
 fidelity of the input images to deliver mosaics that meet user-specified
 parameters of projection, coordinates, and spatial scale. It supports all
 projections and coordinate systems in use in astronomy.
 It contains independent modules for analyzing the geometry of images on the
 sky, and for creating and managing mosaics; these modules are powerful tools
 in their own right and have applicability outside mosaic production, in areas
 such as data validation.

The package will be maintained under the hood of debian-astro by Gijs
Molenaar and me. A git repository will be setup at
