[Trisquel-devel] Some problems with the package database

I have been making use of the Trisquel package database
(packages.trisquel.info) recently and have found some problems:

1. Both search forms on the main page have "slaine" as the default
selected distribution.  This should now probably be "dagda".

2. The top of the page for each package
e.g. <http://packages.trisquel.info/dagda/hello> gives the Trisquel
releases in this order: [ slaine ][ dagda ][ taranis ].  This order is
confusing.  'packages.ubuntu.com' and 'packages.debian.org' list their
releases from oldest to newest, from left to right.

3. Viewing the "list of files" for a package shows only a partial list
for some packages. Compare
<http://packages.trisquel.info/dagda/i386/coreutils/filelist> with
<http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/i386/coreutils/filelist>).  It does
not work at all for others.  Compare
<http://packages.trisquel.info/dagda/i386/hello/filelist> with

On an unrelated note, another thing that I have noticed is that the
"100% SOFTWARE LIBRE" GNU head logo used throughout the Trisquel website
has a strange blob on its mouth.  Is there a deeply symbolic reason for
this or is it a mistake?  Compare
