Well, patches for the template file[1] are perfectly welcome

Check out [2] and try "grep "^Remark:" *" then see what's on the resulting tasks
page[3].  Unfortunately it is not yet documented in the docs ...

In principle doable - but I do not volunteer to maintain this myself.  You
will notice that editing these tasks files is really easy.  Once there are >= 3
such fields set I'll be happy to publish this information on the tasks pages.

[Side note: Pliese use "Debian Med" (without the dash)]
Yes, the usage of Pkg-Something ... I would rather use "Reference" or
"Publication" (the prefix "Pkg-" was only used because "Description" is
just used) would do the trick for the moment until we might have better
means.  Just adding those fields will not harm at all (unknown fields
are ignored - so you can't really break anything).  Let's start investigating
what might make sense here.

Kind regards
