Bug#682205: ITP: heasoft-fv -- General FITS file browser/editor/plotter with a gui

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ole Streicher <debian@liska.ath.cx>

* Package name    : heasoft-fv
  Version         : 5.3
  Upstream Author : William Pence, Pan Chai
* URL             :
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: tcl/tk, C
  Description     : General FITS file browser/editor/plotter with a gui

Fv provides a graphical user interface to data stored in FITS (Flexible
Image Transport System) files.  Local files can be created, viewed and
edited, files on the internet can be opened read-only through the http
and ftp protocols.  Through the POWplot program, FITS data can be
visualized in a large variety of styles.  An interface to the SkyView
online database allows for searching, downloading, and plotting of
images and object lists for a region of the sky.

This is a re-packaging of the "fv" package removed in 2009; see PTS
and http://bugs.debian.org/323469 for the removal bug. Since the name is
too short, the package will be named "heasoft-fv".

A git repository containing the latest upstream sources was created on


Help for packaging would be appreciated.

Best regards
