Hi all,

I have just fixed issue 330 concerning parsing of old TLE data.

One comment of the original reporter is about TLESeries, that
was found not to be really practical. I agree with this, TLESeries
is in my humble opinion ill-designed (I am responsible for designing it,
a very long time ago). I would propose to deprecate the class in 9.0,
and not to propose any replacement: it is probably better to let users
manage series of TLE data by themselves as there are many ways to
store them. I have for example seen different ways to add meta-data
before the official two lines, and we cannot provide a generic way to
handle this.

What do you think?

I'm fine with deprecating TLESeries.

Best Regards,
