Review Request: skychart - Planetarium software for the advanced amateur astronomer
Last modified: 2008-11-05 20:44:44 EST
This program enables you to draw sky charts, making use of the data in 16
catalogs of stars and nebulae. In addition the position of planets,
asteroids and comets are shown.
The purpose of this program is to prepare different sky maps for a
particular observation. A large number of parameters help you to choose
specifically or automatically which catalogs to use, the colour and the
dimension of stars and nebulae, the representation of planets, the display
of labels and coordinate grids, the superposition of pictures, the
condition of visibility and more. All these features make this celestial
atlas more complete than a conventional planetarium.
Taking for review.
FYI: This needs fpc 2.2.2 and lazarus 0.9.26 which are in F-10 and not in other branches (yet). Builds in fedora-devel-i386 mock, RPMlint silent:
$ cd /var/lib/mock//fedora-development-i386/result
$ rpmlint -i *.rpm
Package reviewed and looks correct. APPROVED.
Wow, that easy. I'll inform you once things go wrong with the package once I import it! :) I heard it doesn't build on ppc64! :)
New Package CVS Request
Package Name: skychart

Note that if it fails to build on ppc64, you MUST file a bug against the ppc64 blocker. ;)
Imported and built. Thanks!
