I realised that the astronomy task fully vanished from Debian Science
since now there is a Debian Astro Blend.  IMHO it makes sense to
consider at least a task that sumarises all Debian Astro metapackages.
Currently it looks as if Debian does not have any astronomy packages if
somebody would have an uneducated look at Debian Science. 

So I did *not* added yorick-mira to astronomy since this task does
not exists.  I rather excluded all packages via

diff --git a/misc/sql/0-uncategorised.sh b/misc/sql/0-uncategorised.sh

Since this script has the logic to check whether a package that is
maintained by the Debian Science team is mentioned in Debian Science
tasks the best way to do the exclusion would be rather if you move your
packages into Debian Astro team.

I have also *not* included yorick-mira into any Debian Astro which you
definitely should if you think it should be part of some metapackage.

Kind regards
