The Homepage field for this package points to an uncanonical CRAN URL. Please update to use the current canonical URL instead. The canonical URL is recommended for use in publications, etc., will always redirect to current release version (or devel if package is not in release yet). For example, the link for the package "foo" should be:


Severity: wishlist, Certainty: certain

Check: fields/homepage, Type: binary, udeb, source

Emitted (non-overridden): 4, overridden: 0, total: 4

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
