This is the only change here I'd disagree with. We should only use that homepage on software we developed. For software that doesn't have a web page, using the download location as the homepage is probably acceptable. It's also acceptable not to set a homepage in those cases, in my opinion. "port info" simply omits the homepage information in that case, and "port gohome" knows to display an error message, so nothing breaks if there is no homepage set.
