Summary: [NEW PORT] astro/py-ephem: ephem has new naming
scheme, pyephem is a stub now
Product: Ports & Packages

For more than 12 years now there is astro/pyephem in the ports. The recent
update of the sources changed the naming scheme from pyephem to ephem.
The version 220.127.116.11 in the ports is only a stub, which needs ephem as a
Because several ports in the FreeBSD ports tree have astro/pyephem as a
dependency, the author Brandon Rhodes suggests to hold pyephem to direct to
ephem from there. Following this advice, I added astro/py-ephem as a dependency
in astro/pyephem and created a new port for ephem, astro/py-ephem. The naming
scheme follows other Python ports.
@wen: In the new port astro/py-ephem I signed in as the maintainer. I would
be completely fine, if you instead want to be the maintainer, of course.
"This package is a stub
that contains no Python code,
but lists ``ephem`` as its install requirement
in case any old projects depend on this ``pyephem`` package name.
New projects are encouraged to directly require the main package,
which can be found at: https://pypi.org/project/ephem/ "
