Thanks, I already implemented some of those improvements myself, but
will add the rest as well. I did try to upload celestia to Debian
unstable a while ago, but was blocked by the ftpmasters because of
possible copyright issues. I think I clarified the debian/copyright file
a lot, and will upload it again soon, if it is blocked again then it may
have to go into non-free. If anyone is interested in the discussion I
had with the ftpmaster, I can forward you the emails.

Met vriendelijke groet / with kind regards,
