upstream field in package description
I would like to ask for adding a new field to Debian package descriptions
which defines the upstream source of a package, that is the location where
the original sources were downloaded and probably optional as another field
the upstream authors, like:
Upstream-Author: Foo Crew <firstname.lastname@example.org>
IMO at least the upstream source field should become mandatory for Debian
packages in future. On some packages it's really not that easy to trace back
the original upstream source, because not every maintainer is adding that to
the copyright or README.Debian file.
What do you think?
