Actually as it is the list almost appears a bit overwhelming (at least it quite dominates
the present page), but this will probably balance out as content to the main sections
is added...

I've added references to some Linux and OS X packages (Debian, MacPorts and Fink
being the only ones I was aware of right away - perhaps somewhere on the main
astropy page there could also be a list of packages and maintainers?).
And I back-referenced the page from the FITS page, hope this helps a bit.

Thanks for your efforts as well!
