Package: developers-reference
Version: 3.3.8
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Recent discussions in debian-devel (See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2007/09/msg00628.html and the following
thread) have concluded that promoting the use of "Homepage:" in
debian/control should happen.

Amongst the listed actions, updating The DevRef has been identified.

Please find attached a proposed patch that replaces the current
recommendation of using a pseudo-field in the package descriptions by this
"new" field.

Proposed patch attached.
