Can you please include the following task (in P.S) for Gnuastro in GSOC 2020?

Thank a lot for organizing this,

Name of the GNU program: GNU Astronomy Utilities (Gnuastro)

Summary of the project/idea:
Improving Image Processing tools in GNU Astronomy Utilities (Gnuastro)

Little paragraph explaining the project/idea:
Gnuastro is a large collection of data analysis programs and libraries, in particular image processing tools, the full list of programs and libraries along with some tutorials can be seen in [1], [2] and [3]. Gnuastro's programs already contain many image processing tools for professional (research quality) usage. However, there are still many tools that remain to be added, for example image registration (finding the warp necessary to match images), non-linear warping (for example correcting optical distortions or gravitational lensing) or de-blending tools (for example to separate galaxies that are in one line of sight). The full list of open tasks (for all programs/libraries are available in [4]. If you are interested in image processing, programming in C (astronomical datasets are large and thus need to be efficient) and in the meantime learning some astronomy and working with major telescope data, please get in touch.

Skills required: C programming, image processing (optional)
