I'm sorry, but I'm totaly confused! No Homepage field?
Alpha has version 0.0.20070315-5 whichs debian/control file contains:
Maintainer: Debian Games Team <email@example.com>
Uploaders: Miriam Ruiz <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Jens Seidel <email@example.com>, Sam Hocevar (Debian packages) <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), quilt, gettext, libsdl1.2-dev, libsdl-pango-dev, po4a
I now assumed this fields needs to be set also for binary files and checked Joey's
provided example package ikiwiki but it also contains the Homepage: field only for
the Source package.
There is also no typo in Homepage: as the source package uses it!

Of course. packages.debian.org would not be unusable without it. But there is somewhere
a bug ...
PS: The optional priority is not in sync with the global override file (extra).
Could this cause any problems?
