Sure.  I might take a stab at hacking on the web sentinel when I get
time.  I'd like to change the following, unless you think it is a bad

1. Separate the "Please cite" from the (apparently?) first reference of
the References field in debian/upstream, and introduce a dedicated field
(Citation) for it, so that non-article citation are possible. If
Citation is not present, the current way should still work.

2. Add a "For further information see:" field in the web sentinel, which
displays the first (e.g.) three references from debian/upstream

3. Fix the displayed bibliographical data, some (the non-debian/upstream
ones?) packages no longer display volume and page numbers.

What do you think?
