Ideally a.sl.o would be the central place to find out more about an
activity - including where to get the source code.
As an activity author, I've been missing ways to include links to:

1. The git repo (I've been abusing the Homepage field so far).
2. Release tarballs.
3. Browsing bugs AND filing new ones (as separate links). a.sl.o
   currently allows only a single "support" link with no way to adjust
   the text:

   Support for this activity is provided by the developer at <URL>

HTML isn't allowed anywhere (neither in the description nor in the
release notes), so I can't work around the missing links (other than
putting them on the homepage which would make a.sl.o not the central
place to find out about activities).
