It depends how the page is created. If it's autogenerated I'm fine with
this - if not you are right and I'd avoid duplication. The web sentinel
pages are generated twice a day to reflect the current state of the
Debian pool and work in VCS (as well as after any change in the tasks
files of debian-games package).
