The Astropy Project (http://astropy.org/) is a community effort to develop a
single core package for Astronomy in Python and foster interoperability between
Python astronomy packages. This repository contains the core package which is
intended to contain much of the core functionality and some common tools needed
for performing astronomy and astrophysics with Python.
The Astropy Project is made both by and for its users, so we welcome and
encourage contributions of many kinds. Our goal is to keep this a positive,
inclusive, successful, and growing community by abiding with the
Astropy Community Code of Conduct.
More detailed information on contributing to the project or submitting feedback
can be found on the contributions
page. A summary of contribution guidelines can also be
used as a quick reference when you are ready to start writing or validating
code for submission.
Supporting the Project
The Astropy Project is sponsored by NumFOCUS, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the
United States. You can donate to the project by using the link above, and this
donation will support our mission to promote sustainable, high-level code base
for the astronomy community, open code development, educational materials, and
reproducible scientific research.

Notes for Package Managers
For system packagers: Please install astropy with the command:
$ python setup.py --offline install
This will prevent the astropy_helpers bootstrap script from attempting to
reach out to PyPI.
