  Description     : Classes for VOTable input and output
 The VOTable format is an XML standard for the interchange of data
 represented as a set of tables. In this context, a table is an
 unordered set of rows, each of a uniform structure, as specified in
 the table description (the table metadata). VOTable was designed to
 be close to the FITS Binary Table format.

The package will be maintained by the Debian Astro team. It is part of
the effort to package the Virtual Observatory Java tools from Starlink.

A git repository will be created at


The package depends on the creation of starjava-fits, starjava-table,
and starjava-util.
