To get back to this: I’m probably doing something wrong, but I haven’t managed yet to make anything show up on PyPI.org <http://pypi.org/> when I use “Project-URL” in metadata. 

There’s a pyobjc-core 4.0.1b1 wheel on PyPI.org <http://pypi.org/> that includes two Project-URL lines in its metadata, but that doesn’t add anything to the sidebar. I’ve manually verified that the metadata is present in the wheel file (as I’m using a replacement egg_info command in my setup.py file to generate this part of the metadata).


P.S. I tried to upload to test.pypi.org <http://test.pypi.org/>, but that didn’t work due to an SSL error:

$ twine upload -r testpypi dist/pyobjc_core-4.0.1b1-cp27-cp27m-macosx_10_6_intel.whl 
Uploading distributions to https://test.pypi.org/legacy/

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.
