Debian Astronomy Blend

The Debian Science web sentinel contains tasks with astronomy applications and tools to develop astronomy applications. It also shows some work in progress.

We are currently working on the creation of a specific blend for astronomy, which should cover both amateur and professional astronomers. The rest of the page is just a common scratchpad for ideas. Feel free to add your own ideas.

The ITP for the Blends package is 799137
