Now that python2-astropy-1.0 has been released and is available in the AUR, I'm going to disown this package as it is obsolete.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!

Sorry for the churn. I missed the filename collision with the script /usr/bin/fitsdiff if you have both python-pyfits and python2-pyfits installed. To be clear, both versions of pyfits install the executable scripts /usr/bin/fitscheck and /usr/bin/fitsdiff. To avoid collisions and to follow python vs python2 precedent, the scripts installed by python2-pyfits are renamed as /usr/bin/fitscheck2 and /usr/bin/fitsdiff2. If someone knows a better way to deal with this, I would be happy to implement it.
