I guess I should have been more verbose:

What I ment with 'generated' was the output of 'make dist' for the tasks 
desc file; I ran 'git status' and 'git diff' as well. Afterwards I ran 
'debuild -- binary'.  The Debian packages seem to be ok.

What I meant and did is: Change the Makefile like stated above and run 
'make dist' again. (I just wanted to understand what's going on.)
This time the generated debian-med-tasks.desc file is similar to the one 
in git as shown by 'git diff'.

Strange, indeed. I'm at a loss here…
But, with the exception of the existing (with unexplicable content) 
debian-med-tasks.desc file, things are IMO fine. 

I also did an 'apt source debian-astro' on sid and compared. Their 
tasks.desc file, too, has no 'Packages: list' section.

So I guess you can use everything as is and this bug could be closed.
