Bug Description

Here is a current screenshot of package details:

It can be difficult to relate the summary on the right to a specific opportunity, especially when there are many of these together.

For now, moving the mouse over an opportunity will give it a light grey highlight all the way across, which acts as an okay alternative to zebra striping (which really didn't fit this very well).
This can also be helped a little bit by reducing the maximum width to something smaller, to avoid having disorienting long lines.

Here's another design that occurred to me:

Those Edit buttons could maybe be invisible normally, shown when the mouse is hovering over an opportunity. One advantage here is those details are easy to link up with a specific opportunity, (and edit is a more deliberate act so less of an issue), but a disadvantage is I can't instantly find them as I scan.

We should try some different designs here to find one that fits our use cases.

I like the second design better, also the idea of making the edit invisible normally. If you want, you could ask the people in #ayatana for an opinion.
