Bug#508733: www.debian.org: No weblinks to project homepages in packages.debian.org

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

There are no external web links to the official project home pages of 
package on http://packages.debian.org. I do not see why the Debian 
should obscure the originators of the packages and I do not think that 
there is any rational reason. Without these links you also do not know 
where you can download the current source code without downloading the 
deb file. Furthermore Debian takes credit for the packages/programmes 
without having created them.

Ubuntu for example provides such links (see e. g. 
http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/gnome/abiword) but Debian does not. 
Also other distributions do not provide such links but I think Debian 
could be a pattern to these distributions.
