* Package name    : x11iraf
  Version         : 2.0~BETA
  Upstream Author : National Optical Astronomy Observatories
* URL             : http://iraf.noao.edu
* License         : MIT, with no-ad clause
  Description     : Graphical tools to work with IRAF

x11iraf provides graphical tools to work with IRAF, notably xgterm and
XImtool. IRAF (Image Reduction and Analysis Facility) is a general
purpose software system for the reduction and analysis of astronomical data.

This was in Debian until ~2004 [1], packaged by Zed Pobre, which then
was removed; mainly due to the licensing problem of IRAF. Since IRAF is
now covered by a DFSG compliant license, it is going to be packaged
now[2], and it makes sense to bring x11iraf back as well.

The package is not 64-bit clean (and probably never will, according to
upstream [3]), so the build will be limited to 32-bit platforms.

Cheers

Ole
