I know, but that adds the URL to the project description and not the sidebar. PEP 345 appears to specify metadata that could be used for this, and warehouse seems to contain to make use of this (or at least a database model that allows for specifying more links than just the default one). 

Adding links to the sidebar would be nicer with the new design on PyPI.org <http://pypi.org/>, but there doesn’t seem to be a clean way to add “Project-URL” metadata as described in PEP 345 to a wheel file. I could tweak my setup.py files to add Project-URL metadata, but before I do that I’d like to confirm that (a) that metadata is actually used by warehouse and (b) there is no cleaner way to add this metadata using setuptools.
