Debian Astro: The first years

Streicher, Ole
Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam

Debian Astro is a unique attempt to improve the astronomy software ecosystem. Astronomy software with suitable licenses is packaged and distributed as integrated components of Debian operating system. The use of Debian as an open distribution and development model with its standardized build system ensures reliability and stability of the distributed software as well as reproducibility, which is important in an scientific environment. In my talk, I will introduce the Debian Astro Pure Blend and give an overview on its evolution since its first steps in 2014.
