I also recognized this, and moved debian-astro to the blends subdir
(with a link back to astro).

Thank you. I checked them; they look fine for me.

Yea, it is WIP. I am still unsure about the categories, but it seems to
settle down now a bit.

Whow! Thank you. I will add some content to the main page, but this will
take some time.

I am wondering why the pages are not always complete: for example 
http://blends.debian.org/astro/tasks/gdl just lists one package, while
the task list lists four. Since the missing packages are (still) listed
in the science/astronomy task, it is not a problem with some package
content. Do you have any ideas here?

The statistics show that we clearly need more maintainers :-) I am
always trying to catch anyone who doesn't run away after the word
"Debian" was spoken out, but it is really hard...

I can ask for a status request and point out my interest there as
well. Being visible during installation is one of the motivatins for
doing a blend.

Thanks. I *knew* that there is some docs here, but I didn't find
it. I probably didn't search hard enough :-)

Best regards
