#37616 assigned request

New port request: Sherpa

Description

Would it be possible to create a port for the Sherpa Python modelling and fitting package ( http://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/sherpa/ )?

Sherpa is part of the larger CIAO package ( http://cxc.harvard.edu/ciao/index.html ), but I think packaging that with Macports is too hard.

But it is possible to get the standalone Sherpa version to work with Mac system or Macports Python (as opposed to the CIAO Python): http://cxc.cfa.harvard.edu/contrib/sherpa/ http://www.astropython.org/tutorial/2010/1/Installing-Sherpa-standalone-for-X-ray-analysis

The advantage is that sherpa would then be available together with all the other Macports python packages, as opposed to only with CIAO Sherpa.

I've asked at http://cxc.harvard.edu/cgi-gen/wonderdesk/wonderdesk.cgi if they'd be willing to do this. Let's see ... if not I'll give it a try.
