Do you mean the information is missing on the long list[1] (version information
it is there on the detailed list)?
What exact Link you have with "package documentation" in mind?

The only source of information about upstream in a Debian package is
currently the Homepage field.  However I see a chance to establish
something like you are suggesting if we would add a field to
upstream-metadata.yaml[2] of each releavnt package.  Charles Plessy
and me are currently working on moving this information into
Ultimate Debian Database (UDD - the web sentinel page is created
from the information in UDD).  So if it becomes consensus in Debian
Multimedia to use this file we can fix this (no package upload should
be needed because Charles has implemented a way to read the file from
packaging Vcs).

Kind regards
