Re: [Debian-astro-maintainers] Maybe some more Astronomy packages to add from Debian.

HI Ben,

I would suggest to move the discussion to debian-astro@lists.d.o, since
the -maintainers list is more for technical messages (bug reports and such).

I cross-checked all, but it seems that they are in our blend. Generally,
not all packages of our blend are actually maintained by the
debian-astro team; especially older packages have an individual
maintainer. The important thing here is to be included in one of our tasks,


The "astronomy" and "astronomy-devel" tasks of the debian science blend
are now removed, since they are completely replaced by the
debian-science blend. Debian Buster still contained them as transitional

These are in the astro-tools package ("tools" task).

I would not count this as an astronomy program, as it mainly deals with
(artificial)  earth satellites.
