Repositories are linked from the podling status page, though it is admittedly
not as convenient to get there in two hops.

Many recent podlings use Git -- often multiple repositories -- so linking to
SVN is of limited use.

If you really really want this I'm not going to object but I think it should
be acknowledged that it's often inappropriate.

Definitely the resource name is important for that purpose -- I'm simply
questioning how much benefit we get from dedicating a field to it on the
podling listing page.

Everything on that page is also duplicated on the podling status pages.

If certain values are not in sync, I think we should acknowledge that and fix
our DRY problems rather than add more duplication.

Hmm.  To be honest, I don't think that's justified.  I think it's too many
resources providing slightly different views of the same information.

Another option would be to add JavaScript show/hide to the podling index page,
where clicking on a podling reveals expanded data.  I'm not in favor of that
(too much work) but I mention it as another alternative to creating new web
pages.
