What did you do?

View a package's importedby tab

What did you expect to see?

Similar importers grouped, or an option to filter. For the example url, I'd like to see one of docker and one of moby.

The end goal is that unique importers are easier to find.

This could be realized with

  • a tree view grouping things that seem to be related, defaulting to collapsed
  • or a filter field, allowing positive or negative matches
    • positive: enter term to show only packages with term in their import path
    • negative: enter -docker to hide everything with docker in the import path

What did you see instead?

A long list that might be 90% duplication (forks of docker and moby).

For many packages, this isn't an issue. But for ones imported by something else that's extremely popular (and thus having many forks) the importedby list gets diluted by duplicates.

Examples would be any package used by docker, k8s, hashicorp products, etc.
