Package: mdbtools
Version: N/A
Severity: minor

Packages generated by this source package mention "Homepage" (or
somethign similar like "Web site" or whatever) in their description
(in debian/control), to give a link to the upstream home page or web site.

However, the most commonly accepted standard for mentioning such
upstream homepages is by mentioning it alon in a paragraph AND
prepending "Homepage:" by TWO spaces and not only one (thus making the
paragraph hard-formatted).

This is probably something that could be changed in the future if the
specification for debian/control is extended to allow a dedicated field for
this but, in the meantime, I suggest that you follow this "de facto"
standard in your package, which will make further change (or mass bug
reporting) easier.
