	That information depends on the developer. If the developer put the homepage 
in the Description of the package (see rat: 
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/rat.html), the WML magic adds 
hypertext to the URL. But if the developer does not include the page where 
get the upstream package, you'll have to download the package, and look into 
/usr/share/doc/package/copyright, where this information is stored.

	By the way, I've always thought that the presence of a field with upstream 
URL should be mandatory in Debian packages (like Source0: field in RPM, not 
mandatory, but existant).
