The current package browser is not meant to be permanent and was a
quick-and-dirty implementation (it is OK for now but it may not be
reasonable when we have > 1000 packages). At some point it will be
replaced by a HOP based browser. Anyway, I am not a web designer and
I agree with you about MMN. To lessen the problem right now I have
added hyperlinks on the package names.
I would be interested in other suggestions you (or anyone else) may
have concerning the web package browser. What kind of information
should it present? What kind of search should be possible? etc.
