Could there be a link back to http://wiki.debian.net/?PackagesDescriptionsReview
perhaps? In particular "Please tell what you intend to work on before actually starting, to avoid conflicts." would benefit from some sort of concrete instructions.

"Section" or "category"?

Could the names of the reviewers be indicated somehow? (Perhaps with an escape hatch if there are more than, say, three or four)

This page is for discussing the PackagesDescriptionsReview CGI at http://zorglub.diwi.org/pkg-descriptions/

General

The buttons have the text "Submit Query", probably because the HTML doesn't contain an explicit button label. It's slighty misleading in some situations. Could the label be changed to something which makes sense?

Section display

It would be nice to see how many packages are in a section (or in a quarter, as the case may be).

The discplay tends to get pretty wide. At the same time, many fields are just a single label or a short piece of text. So, how about rearranging the display from the current:

  +--------------+-----------------+-----------------+--------+--------+--+
  || package name ||short description||long description ||review 1||review 2||st||
  +--------------+-----------------+-----------------+--------+--------+--+

to something like this:

  +--------------+-------------+--------+--------+--------+
  || package name || long        || review || review || status ||
  +--------------+ description || 1      || 2      ||        ||
  || short desc   ||             ||        ||        ||        ||
  +--------------+-------------+--------+--------+--------+

This would hopefully reduce the need to scroll back and forth.

Package display

In sections which have been split into quarters, the "section" link nevertheless leads back to the full listing for the section in question. Probably the link should preserve the &quarter= argument of the referring link, if it has one.
