If we enforce Homepage, we also have to pay attention  to the link content:

this is a meaningless example:

http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/QSpatialReport/ (homepage link broken and
even if it were not broken, still unrelated with the plugin since it's the
company homepage)

I think that the plugin home page should be a page about the plugin itself.

There are many others like this that I can't recall now.
