homepage-in-binary-package

This non-native source package produces at least one binary package with a Homepage field. However, the source package itself has no Homepage field. Unfortunately, this results in some source-based tools/services (e.g. the PTS) not linking to the homepage of the upstream project.

If you move the Homepage field to the source paragraph in debian/control then all binary packages from this source will inherit the value by default.

For more information please consult:

  • Homepage (Section 5.6.23) in the Debian Policy Manual
