* Package name    : erfa

  Description     : Image visualization and access to catalogs and data
for astronomy
 ERFA is a C library containing key algorithms for astronomy, and is
 based on the SOFA library published by the International Astronomical
 Union (IAU).
 It is intended to replicate the functionality of SOFA (aside from
 possible bugfixes in ERFA that have not yet been included in SOFA),
 but is licensed under a three-clause BSD license to enable its
 compatibility with a wide range of open source licenses. Permission
 for this release has been obtained from the SOFA board.

The intention of this package is to replace the iausofa_c package. Since
the prefix of all functions changed from iau_ to erfa_, the dependent
packages need to be patched to use erfa. These are the packages
"starlink-pal" and "python-astropy".
