  Description     : scientific-grade astronomical computations for Python

I would like to schedule some cron jobs relative to the time of sunset
and sunrise at my current location, having this package in Debian would
allow me to do that.

Hello Paul,

I will package it! I want to do something similar to you. :)

I have only one doubt: I'm a member of the DPMT, but this package maybe is 
more suitable under the umbrella of the Debian Science Team. If it's so, I 
will be happy to join the Debian Science Team and maintain python-pyephem 
under the umbrella of Debian Science Team.

Andreas what do you suggest?

Kind regards,

I'm not sure its the easiest library to package, I looked at the code
and there are some issues that are against Debian policy. It might be
better to look at one of the other python libraries for sunset/sunrise
calculation. There are a few, I suggest doing some web searching.

python-pyephem does more than that though and might be useful generally
for Debian Science stuff.

Do you refer at the embedded (vendorized AFAICS) copy of libastro?

Yes, but I'm also interested in the orbital routines provided :)
You can compute, for example, the next supermoon in coincidence of a full 
moon.

I'm fine joining the Debian Science Team :)

Hi,
can you tell me why there is a problem with license?
From COPYRIGHT file it seems that respective authors
of libastro agreed to distribute it under GPL/LGPL.
Does that mean that the whole code is now under
GPL/LGPL?

Tomasz
