[Python-modules-team] Bug#695114: Please package PyFITS 3.1

Package: pyfits
Version: 1:3.0.8-2
Severity: wishlist

A new version of PyFITS was released last August. It is a prerequisite for
the latest release of STScI_Python, which calls methods not yet available
in 3.0.8 (e.g., lazyproperty's setter).

I was able to package this privately without too much effort. The only
noteworthy step was that I disabled the version_setup_hook in setup.cfg
since it was causing "debian/rules clean" to update __setup_datetime__ in
lib/pyfits/version.py and pbuilder choked on that while rebuilding the
source package.
