Line 7: Line 14:
For quite some time, we used to put the URL of the upstream project in the description itself. The recommended way is now to put it in the new "Homepage" field in the source stanza of the control file. The field will be propagated in the source package and in the binary packages (and thus will end up in Sources.gz and Packages.gz). It's possible to override the Homepage field for each a specific binary package by putting a second Homepage field in the corresponding binary stanza in the control file. === Example of news ===
