[AstroPy] Python packages in package managers
Fri Mar 16 11:34:49 CDT 2012
I maintain some Python Astronomy packages in Fedora (to name a few:
pyfits, ATpy, asciitable...) If there are interested Fedorans in the
audience, there is always some room to comaintain packages or swap

> As some of you already know, I've been working on adding various Python packages for Astronomy to MacPorts, a package manager on Mac. I think that adding at least some of the Astronomy packages to package managers on various platforms will make it a lot easier in future for people to get a full Python installation on Mac and Linux without having to resort to e.g. EPD or other package bundles, so if you are interested, I would definitely encourage you to find out how you can help add packages to various other packages managers.
> I'm happy to help with MacPorts, but making sure the packages are up to date, etc. is already quite a bit to keep track of, and there are still many astronomy packages that have yet to be added, so I can't help add the packages to other package managers. It would be really great if other people could volunteer to help with other package managers!
