The CASASystemGroup will release a binary tarball that includes libraries, headers, and other files that are required to develop casapy from the CASA source code repository. In particular, it will include a release of CASACore.
CASASystemGroup will maintain a source-code package-management system that will enable developers to build -- and modify -- any of the pre-requisite packages from source code. (in general, the packages will use autoconf/automake)
For Build Dependency Tracking:
The CASASystemGroup will modify the existing CASA makefiles to handle most of the dependency issues.
The CASASystemGroup will create additional scripts and makefiles as necessary to handle dependencies between the top-level packages casapy, casacore, and asap.
