Bug Description

In bug 156976 a problem was identified that made the freshmeat and sourceforge url in the project overview page broken. The fix corrected the URL but the current data needs update and validation.

There are 2 steps needed to fix this bug:
a) the form validator needs to cope with the project name or the project URL and do the right thing, for instance, if the user enters only the project name, LP should append the freshmeat URL + project name, if the user enters the URL, LP should check that the URL syntax is correct and accept it;
b) After step "a", existing data needs cleanup

Current link is : http://freshmeat.net/projects/http://freshmeat.net/projects/democracy/

Did you put the full URL in Details ?

True that having the script verify the page exists and returns a 2xx or 3xx HTTP status could be a plus.

This double http link happens in most of the Projects. For example in https://launchpad.net/freedict-editor:

the link of the 'Sourceforge project' is http://sourceforge.net/projects/http://sourceforge.net/projects/freedict

This is a simple bug that needs simple validation code to be fixed.
