      Description

      The git repository for astrometry_net_data contains a token representation of the CFHT data and the README guidance on acquiring USNOB data.

      Neither of these two datasets, as-is, have had recent-past use.

      Option 1: This Issue is to resolve whether they should be carried indefinitely in the git repository as they now stand; or

      Option 2: Reconsider how we setup, maintain, and programatically access the various astrometry_net_data datasets and then implement the new specification.

      Option 3: Perhaps this is an ancillary task to developing a new specification for how we maintain and access the different types of datasets we use: ephemerides and test data.

      The options run from Trivial importance for Option 1, Minor importance for Option 2, and Major importance for the overarching Option 3.

            astrometry.net catalogs are deprecated by RFC-562, so this issue is likely to be moot.
