As suggested here, then discussed at Distutils-SIG, I would like to
propose the addition of two more fields for the
upcoming Metadata 1.2 (PEP 345) that could be used at PyPI on projects pages.
A string containing the URL for the package's browsable
repository. It can be any url of the repository
(trunk, branch, tags) as long as it can be browsed from a web browser.
A string containing the URL for the package's bug tracker.
Other fields were proposed, but were controversial. You can follow the
latest discussions at distutils-sig about them,
If these fields are added, PyPI could display those links and offer a
standard way for end users to interact with the projects
maintainers, besides the "comment/rating" feature.
