[Catalog-sig] Standardized way of getting to a package download URL in Cheeseshop

I'm working on a project I called "Cheesecake" which aims to quantify
the "goodness" of Python packages based on various indicators such as
presence of special files (README, LICENSE, etc.), special directories
(tests, doc, etc.), percentage of modules/classes/methods/functions
with docstrings, etc.

It would be nice if there was a standardized way to get to a download
URL for a given package listed at the Cheeseshop. Currently some
packages are hosted there, some are hosted elsewhere, but in any case
one would think that a pointer to the full URL for the package file
could be kept on the Cheeseshop page for that package and made
available via an API.

I'd volunteer to start this ball rolling if nobody else has been
working on it. What is the procedure for contributing to the PyPI
project?
