Intelsat has changed satnames and I have changed them in sources.conf

This might be interesting for other plugins using satellitenames.

Reelchannelscan for example is using these names.
I have changed the files for reelchannelscan, you can find it here:

As of 1 February 2007, Intelsat will change the names of 16 
of its 51 satellites. The name change is part of our integration 
efforts, and is being implemented based in part on consensus 
feedback and recommendations from our customer community. 

The changes being implemented are the following

Galaxy (G) replaces the Intelsat Americas (IA) brand 
Intelsat (IS) replaces the PanAmSat brand (PAS) 
Unique or joint venture satellites, such as SBS-6, 
Horizons or APR, will retain the same name
