This package allows the installation and removal of astronomy catalogues,
converting those catalogues to astronomy programs' data formats.
All stardata catalogues conforming to stardata-common policy are
converted automatically at installation time to the formats of
astronomy programs that support stardata-common.
The register-stardata program is transparent for the user; this program
is called automatically when any astronomy package conforming to the
stardata-common policy is installed, upgraded or removed.
