I am pleased to announce that the GNU Astronomy Utilities (Gnuastro) Git repository (version controlled source) is now uploaded onto GNU Savannah (GNU's main project management service) and is publicly available there. The official Gnuastro book has a full section explaining how to clone, bootstrap and synchronize your local copy:

In short, to clone it please run

    git clone git://

You cannot immediately `./configure' the cloned source. To prepare the cloned directory for configuration, we have implemented a single `./bootstrap' script (great thanks to Mosè Giordano).

It is possible to use this single command to prepare everything:

    cd gnuastro
    ./bootstrap          # needs internet connection

However, we recommend reading the "Bootstrapping" section of the book first. This section explains best practices and bootstrap requirements to do it cleanly:

After bootstrapping, the standard GNU build system can be used to configure, build, check and install Gnuastro:

   make check
   sudo make install

To report bugs, please see:

If you are interested in Developing your own utility within Gnuastro, or helping us in the existing tasks and bugs, please read the "Developing" chapter of the book and join us. You are most welcome:

The GNU FTP server will soon be ready to accept Gnuastro's tarballs. As soon as it is set up, we will start uploading tarball pre-releases (alpha) versions and stable versions:
