Dear Axel and everybody,

in the case of Debian Med, many URLs have already been corrected in our VCS.
However, we felt that this was not enough to trigger an upload.  A Lintian
check is definitely a good idea to make sure there will be no leftovers.

In the meantime, the problem can also be solved by proposing a relevant apache
redirection command to the Alioth team.

In the long term, this shows that such volatile information should better be
obtained from the package's VCS or the UDD, instead of the source package
itself.  The field could either stay in debian/control, or be transferred to
another stable location similar to the debian/upstream file.

Have a nice day,
