This seems like a good package, if its useful to you and others.

I have a quick pyraf 1.1.1 .deb on my site, which I don't use. Others
have reported using it successfully; I suspect that its not the most
recent version. Since pyraf is just an iraf add-on, best you can do
in debian is an upload to contrib (right?). And I think that is
pushing it, even, since iraf probably won't be in non-free..
