Thanks for working on this.

Looks very promising!

On the package details page, it would be great if URL's could be clickable
(Homepage, VCS-Browser). Also Lintian tags could be linked to their
description on lintian.d.o

I also think it is not necessary to show missing optional fields (eg.
various VCS-* fields).

It may also help to know whether the package is already in Debian (with
a link to packages.d.o in order to know more about the history of the
uploads) or if it is a new package.

As from the maintainer "personal package archive" page, I understand that
binary packages will be made publicly available? The page states 'deb ...'
entries in sources.list. If so, I think it is a bad idea. Only source
packages should be available to avoid people use this as a standard
repository (I remember it used to be the case for mentors.d.n).

Keep up the good work.
