Taking over the packaging

Dear Ole Streicher,

Thank you very much for the initial work! I managed to clone out the
repo[1] before you decided to delete it.

We are packaging casacore 1.6.0 [2] basing on your work, under the
project of AireLinux[3], a working-in-progress debian-based distribution
for astrophysics initiated by Tsinghua Center for Astrophysics[4].

If you canceled the packaging for lacking of manpower, we sincerely ask
you to consider rejoining (or taking lead of) the effort. We have
talented astrophysics students with *nix system administration
experience getting recruited for packaging of the start-of-art
tools. Also, feel free to mentor and review our progress if your time is

Besides, casacore is in the gentoo official tree brought by the
gentoo-science team[5], from which many distribution-level patches could
be borrowed.

We are only a few steps away from the final upload. Let's give it a
kick, shall we?
