first: Thank you very much for your work on the Mageia package, Joseph!
My package would be impossible without this work.

I also recognized the horrible project "management" by IRAF developers,
hell of bundled libs and official source doesn't compile without
modifications. This is also the reason why I don't want to maintain an
official Fedora package for IRAF right now. There really have to be some
changes upstream, github would be a very nice place for this. I also got
some similar information from Ole Streicher (Debian packager) some time ago.
