Thanks for the feedback.

Back when we had all eggs in svn, the information about the repository
where eggs could be found was a bit redundant, as all of them were in
the same repository.  Thus, this information was omitted from the egg
documentation pages.

Since we adopted the distributed approach, most eggs not hosted in svn
have a link to their repository in their respective wiki page.  Usually
when the documentation of eggs doesn't mention the repository, it's
because they are in svn.  Now that the distributed approach is the
recommented way to store eggs, I think the documentation of eggs stored
in svn should also include a link to their repostories.  Unfortunatelly,
I don't think there is an easy way to do that automatically.

All the best.
