"Delete Link" is too easy on distribution source package page

Bug #276409 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2008-09-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

On the page for a distribution source package with upstream links, such as <https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hwdb-client>, the button for deleting an upstream link is quite large and prominent, much more so than the button for correcting the link.

This is backwards. It should be easier to correct an upstream link than to delete it.

A small improvement would be to change the "Delete Link" button to an icon-only button, but that would still leave deleting much easier than updating.

Perhaps a more thorough way to fix it would be to relegate deleting the link to being an option in the interface for editing the link. Something like:
This package is actually from:
(*) Project: [____________] series: [____________]
( ) I don’t know, but it’s not <existing project> <existing series>

( Change )
