    Query: Added short version of Gaia DR3 in VizieR
    Until now, we only had a short name for the main Gaia database of ESA. But
    VizieR also mirrors Gaia data and in some cases, its easier (with more

    With this commit the short name 'gaiadr3' has beed added as a VizieR
    dataset, so users don't have to remember (or query!) the low-level VizieR
