I appreciate you efforts in helping to make Ubuntu better here. However
if we upload this to Ubuntu then we have to then start merging against
every package update in Debian, and if we don't then the package
languishes without updates. This is the cost to adding a delta in
Ubuntu, and so we don't do it for trivial reasons. So yes, for trivial
and inconsequential changes like these, we send to Debian instead and
just wait for the change to trickle through.

Nobody's forcing you to send the patch to Debian, but I don't think it's
worth maintaining a delta in Ubuntu over this. I'm therefore NAK-ing
this patch on behalf of Ubuntu, unsubscribing sponsors, and marking the
Ubuntu task Won't Fix to make this clear. The only reasonable path to
getting this change landed is to send it to Debian.

Status in wmctrl package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix
Status in wmctrl source package in Bionic:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  the package lists http://tomas.styblo.name/wmctrl/ as the Homepage for
  the project.  This redirects to the author's google+ feed now.
  http://tripie.sweb.cz/utils/wmctrl/ is probably a better URL.
