I just uploaded Celestia 1.5.1, split into a dfsg and non-free source
package. The dfsg sources provide the same binary packages, but the
celestia-common package now misses virtually all planetary maps and some
models that were identified as non-free in bug #174456. These have been
moved to the non-free source package which provides one binary package,
celestia-common-nonfree. The celestia-common package suggests
celestia-common-nonfree. Since Celestia works fine without the non-free
files, there is no need to move it to Debian's contrib section.

I hope this will finally move Celestia into testing. If you find there
is still questionable data left in the dfsg packages, or if I accidently
moved too much to the non-free package, please file a bug with the
appropriate severity level.
