Re: New Package: stellarium

Lots of thanks, I found that info extremelly useful.
Even when it is a great program, the program has to go
to non-free:

"Stellarium has been moved in section non-free to
close bug #198495 (Please clarify copyright license of
astronomical data used by this software). Please look
at the copyright file for more informations."

"The astronomical data are from the Hipparcos data

"The Hipparcos data catalogue license complies with
the DFSG. A message acknowledging ESA has been put in
this copyright file."

"Unfortunately, stellarium upstream can't give me the
licence of the textures and the images the program
displays. Some are coming from Celestia, and some are
coming from "unknown" sources. Upstream understands
well the licensing problems and is going to work on
this. As long as this issue remains, Stellarium will
stay in non-free."

As I already have it packaged, mostly because it is a
program I personally use and it's easier for me to
install and uninstall it this way, I understand why
the original maintainer might has lost his interest in
it. I don't think I'd like to maintain it myself.
Maybe I'll just put it in mentors.debian.es just in
case it is useful for anyone, or maybe I should write
to the original maintainer.
