      Description

      Following the Astropy/LSST summit in March and the completion of the subsequent SPIE paper (DM-5444) I propose that we can now start using Astropy in LSST DM code. I am proposing to do this via a stub EUPS package as for numpy and scipy. No change is required to Jenkins or newinstall.sh as Astropy is already included because of a Sims dependency.

      I propose we start with version 1.1 as the minimum acceptable version (this is the version that includes pandas support).

      Astropy affiliated packages are not part of this RFC.

            +1 with the caveats above. We really ought to be using this instead of pyfits and we can't do any integration until this is an approved package, but it's probably too big to take the whole thing at once.

            +1, but perhaps also clarify the core / affiliated package distinction.

            This RFC is not discussing affiliated packages.

            I like the boost comparison.

            No objections. Closing RFC a few days early. Guidance on usage of components of astropy will be handled in DM-5934.
