  Version         : 2.16
  Upstream Author : IRAF programming group at the National Optical

  Description     : Image Reduction and Analysis Facility

IRAF (an acronym for Image Reduction and Analysis Facility) is a
collection of software written at the National Optical Astronomy
Observatory (NOAO) geared towards the reduction of astronomical images
in pixel array form. This is primarily data taken from imaging array
detectors such as CCDs.

IRAF was in Debian until ~2004 [1], packaged by Zed Pobre. An attempt
was made by Justin Pryzby to put it back shortly later [2], but this was
not successfull due to the complicated licensing of IRAF (several
licenses, inclusing some non-free). However, recently IRAF simplified
their license in that they use only three DFSG compatible licenses [3],
with MIT covering most of the code.

Since this is a quite huge package, I would appreciate help and sharing
experiences on packaging. Also, if someone still keeps some results of
Justin's packagin, please drop me a note.

Cheers

Ole

Iraf is not forgooten :-)

I just want to remind myself that there is an attempt to package iraf
for Fedora Linux. They are able to compile the whole package now, so it
makes sense to adopt their patches.

This is from the Fedora-Astronomy mailing list

Betreff: [fedora-astronomy] IRAF RPM spec files

Here is the latest set up patches.  The main difference is that I
found and fixed some fortran declarations and one very subtle but
nasty segfault in fncache.c.  I also changed the compile so that it
uses the system expat and readline.

The individual checkins are available at

https://github.com/joequant/iraf

The build file is just a git diff between master and linux-build.

Let me know if they help the compile....

There is one extra patch that isn't used by the spec file which you
can play with.

I'm in the process of trying to get everything to work with gfortran,
but am running into a lot of subtle memory issues.  There is IRAF code
that creates a subsystem for allocating memory and there are a lot of
pointer conversion issues.

On my machine I got a working RPM  ----->
