Bug#440641: www.debian.org: packages.debian.org should explain "gnuab"

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

I went to look at the new packages.d.o site, and eventually found myself 
looking at 
Now, it says
  Package: 3ddesktop (0.2.9-6) [gnuab]

My question was, "what's gnuab"?  Is it a typo for something?  Well, 
eventually found that out fom the d-d-a@lists post, but how is a regular 
user, who does not subscribe to d-d-a, going to figure it out?

My suggestion is to have the "gnuab" word (and any other similar word) to be 
a link to an explanatory page.
