Re: Including package's home page with package description



There is currently the following email address for packages:
Package Contacts -- <packagename>@packages.debian.org

maybe a http://www.debian.org/packages/<packagename> web page could be 
created and even generated from the information in the .deb?  Of course, 
that still doesn't address the initial problem: that the home page is not 
included in that info :)
