Hi all, I am currently packaging wsjtx for re-inclusion in Debian.
In the code there is a binary - JPLEPH, which looks to be a compiled version of JPL Planetary Ephemeris. Inspecting the binary, I assume the tool used was asc2eph, so I'm assuming it's the v405 ascii ephemerides files that were used. I'm contacting the upstream author to clarify this. Ideally I'd like to upload the source and build this file as part of the package build process. What I'm here to clarify is that I can't see a license for the ascii files - I'm not sure if this fileset is something that anyone in debian-legal have come across, or have any advice on what license they may have been released under? I can't see anything on the JPL FTP server outside of the CD Notes from the original release . The contact detailed on them worked at JPL 21 years ago, and I don't reckon the email address is still active. Any advice or suggestions you can offer would be greatly received!
