Welcome, and thank you for looking into this. :)

Btw, one very cool program in the task is Celestia, which unfortunatly
is no longer included in Debian unstable and testing, see
<URL: https://packages.qa.debian.org/c/celestia.html >.  The reason is
that the program depend on libraries no longer shipped by Debian.  Do
you know if anyone is working on getting Celestia into shape for Debian?
It is very sad if we no longer will have the universe simulator included
in the future. :)

Btw, what about making one of the packages depend on the other, and only
maintain the list in one spot?

Personally I like the original pages better than the new ones, but I do
not really have strong opinion on this.

Happy hacking
