Is there a proper place to discuss some detail?
It is fine by me to discuss it in this thread, via private mail or on
the Talk page of the wiki.
Specifically, I find the Debian way, that is, adding a file to each
package VCS to record where upstream releases are to be found , to
be a very effective idea.
IMHO using the wiki is currently not a problem. Once all or nearly all
Fedora packages use it, it might be useful to move this to the VCS or
maybe PackageDB. But currently it is working fine and the wiki makes it
easier to add e.g. several packages at once. A problem with the VCS is
that it is not as easy as using the wiki to access the information,
because afaik currently all git repos would need to be downloaded
completely. Therefore I guess a PackageDB approach with an easy query to
get the list of regexes and urls would be better.
