I will maintain this package while it gets new releases and bug fixes from STSCI.

Now that python-astropy-1.0 has been released and is available in the AUR, I'm going to disown this package as it is obsolete. If you still use pyfits and are desperate, if you formerly called it with

import pyfits

you can install astropy and call it with

from import fits as pyfits

without changing any other code. Good luck!

Update to v3.3. Note that STScI intends to deprecate pyfits as all functionality has been moved to astropy (also in AUR). Correspondingly, I will be moving my own workstations to astropy and will orphan python-pyfits and python2-pyfits in the near future. Please see for further information.
