It is not just repology, but easy linking to details for external
parties/downstreams we need to point to somewhere.
I think there were some remaining ideas for the new websites,
where a package gets detail page on its own.
The pages are statically generated, the old "useful" page format
was taking a very long time to load, with each release and increase
of package count we got k more seconds. Nothing I'd like to go back
