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:
Python/R/Julia wrappers for C library of GNU Astronomy Utilities (Gnuastro)

Little paragraph explaining the project/idea:
Gnuastro is a large collection of data analysis programs and C/C++ libraries for (astronomical) data manipulation and analysis. Gnuastro is primarily written in C because astronomical datasets are large and thus need to be efficient. The full list of programs and libraries are available in [1] and [2]. The programs use the libraries for high-level operations directly on the command-line. But many data science operations are today done in the high-level language environments of Python, R or Julia. All three languages have low-level and well-defined interfaces with C libraries. Gnuastro therefore has a task [3] to define a low-level wrapper infra-structure in Gnuastro to easily use the full Gnuastro library in any of these higher-level languages. This will be a wonderful chance to master any of these high-level languages (which are almost fully written in C themselves), while also working on data science/analysis.

Skills required: C programming, C interface of Python or R or Julia (any language is fine).
