[Haskell-cafe] What about adding a wiki for each haskell project?

What about if during the "Checking a Cabal package" upload step there
was a check to see if there was a homepage in the cabal file? If there
is no homepage we could have something like:

"Your cabal file does not contain a link to a project homepage. You
may want to add a haskell wiki link as your homepage by adding the
following line to your cabal file..."

This would not force the wiki page on anyone but it would add a nudge
to anyone who just didn't think about it.
