OK. I adapted the webconf accordingly. Due to different preferences of
single Blend developers the toolset is able to cope with this but from
my point of view it has (small) advantages to keep these together in
case some changes might be needed that will affect all Blends.

Sure. That's pretty normal.

Just take the time you need.

I just fixes the syntax error in the tasks file. Please note that tasks
files - in perfect analogy to debian/control files - allow only one
Depends field. So you need to either mention all packages in one
Depends field or alternatively separate the different Depends fields by
at least one empty line. I fixed the gdl task and commited the change.
Now the task is rendered properly.
you can find the logs of the web sentinel with usually helpful information
about problems when rendering the tasks. In the Debian Astro case it
claims improper Authors fields which should be fixed in the according
packages. In the python-astro case it is an mix of " and " and ", " to
separate authors from each other. I'd (strongly) recommend to use
" and " consequently between all authors.

Since I cared for proper syntax in the Debian Science tasks (most of
the time). ;-)

Fixes for the docs are welcome.
