Bug#609935: debian-policy: 5.2 should clarify how Hompage from the source and binary packages relate

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist


The Homepage control filed is according to chapter 5.2 allowed in both,
the source package and the binary packages paragraphs.

IMHO, this makes (semantically even sense - perhaps that should be pointed out,
too) as e.g. a -doc, or a -dev packacke might have it's own bigger area
in the whole project's website.

But unlike with Section and Priority, it's not specified whether the binary packages
derive that from the Source package if it's specified there AND not overriden
in the binary package paragraph.
