I have found what are you seeing !!!!

But, for example,  morse-simulator

you arrive here:


and then you click you have said:


and appears a page with:

bla bla bla
Source Package morse-simulator

wheezy (science): 0.5.2-1
  Binary packages: morse-simulator, morse-simulator-data, morse-simulator-doc

jessie (science): 1.1.1-1
  Binary packages: morse-simulator, morse-simulator-data, morse-simulator-doc, 

sid (science): 1.2-2
  Binary packages: morse-simulator, morse-simulator-data, morse-simulator-doc, 

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that if I click on the jessie or sid or wheezy 
(distro names) will target me to the:


that is the page that i wanted. I think that the link is not intuitive (at 
least for me). Could be possible, for example, to change the label of the link 
and add something like:

Source package in wheezy (science): 0.5.2-1

Source package in jessie (science): 1.1.1-1

Source package in sid (science): 1.2-2

I know that this kind of changes needs a lot of consensus and I would like to 
hear more opinions about that, but I think that it could be more clear is 
shows that are targeting to the source information and not to the debian 

Rereading again the mail, and reading again the page I see that put on the top 
of the list: Source Package, but it has been so opaque for me during this 

Any suggestion?
