  Description     : Convert SAC waveform data to MiniSEED

SAC and MiniSEED are two commonly used formats for seismic data [1,2].

sac2mseed converts SAC waveform data to MiniSEED format. By default the
format of the input files is automatically detected: alpha or binary
(byte order autodetected).

This utility is part of the standard toolbox of the seismologist. I
also filed an ITP for the utility that does the opposite conversion
(bug #886993).

I'd like to maintain this package within the debian-science team.
Co-maintainership is welcome.

The repository is currently on salsa:


and the packaging workflow follows what is suggested by the
git-buildpackage documentation.
