I noticed the copyright issues with IRAF and that it was suggested on
the iraf.net boards that an install script could be used instead.
We use iraf a fair bit in university so I've written install scripts for
both Fedora and Ubuntu. They're mostly designed for installation onto a
single pc as opposed to a network and still have a switch user bug to
work out so any ideas, recommendations or hijacking is welcome
They can be found at http://student.dcu.ie/~reynols7/iraf.html
I need to know your opinion about this. I want to delay the release of
Fedora Astronomy spin till F11, because:
1) Gives us chances to put even more packages, right now we are ready
to go on with packages but we can do more and better.
2) F11 will be far better release than F10.
3) Year 2009 is the year of astronomy and I could have possible grant
for this project in that year.
No need to rush. Thought?
