Another option here would be not to use the short description, but
actually the name of the task:

   [ ] Debian Science Pure Blend
   [ ] ... Astronomy
   [ ] ... Astronomy-dev
   [ ] ... Brain-Computer interface
   [ ] ... Biology

This would still require some adjustments to have a good readability
there ("Astronomy-dev" is not really useful here), but these changes
were minor.

Drawback however is that the names seem not to be translated, so there
will be the same additional work for the translation teams anyway. 

As one can see the short description (in its ideal form) and the name
are (in english) almost identical; I wonder whether we should get rid of
one of them (or at least ask to keep them identical).
