I'm sorry, but I'm totaly confused! No Homepage field?
Alpha has version 0.0.20070315-5 whichs debian/control file contains:

Source: hex-a-hop
Section: games
Priority: optional
Maintainer: Debian Games Team <pkg-games-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uploaders: Miriam Ruiz <little_miry@yahoo.es>, Jens Seidel <jensseidel@users.sf.net>, Sam Hocevar (Debian packages) <sam+deb@zoy.org>
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 5), quilt, gettext, libsdl1.2-dev, libsdl-pango-dev, po4a
Standards-Version: 3.7.2
Homepage: http://www.aceinternet.co.uk/~mokona/
XS-Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-games/packages/trunk/hex-a-hop/
XS-Vcs-Browser: http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-games/packages/trunk/hex-a-hop/?op=log

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!

What's wrong?

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?
