Follow-up Comment #19, patch #8787 (project octave):

So I tried to work on this and found out that my HTML and CSS are pretty bad.
I'm also thinking that having the generate_html package create a
short_package_description doesn't work very well because it's preventing us
from making changes easily.

What if the generate_html package insteads adds a metadata.json file.  We can
either have them read on the fly each time or have something on the server
that creates a short_package_description when I upload the html.

$json = file_get_contents ($pkg_name . "/metadata.json");
if (! $json)

$metadata = json_decode ($json);
if (is_null ($metadata))

Where the json file can be something like:

  "name" : "interval",
  "desc" : "The interval package for real-valued interval arithmetic allows 
one to evaluate functions over subsets of their domain",
  "link" :
