Links on sidebar of gem page

How come I see some gems have links on the sidebar for things like Source Code and Bug Tracker that do not have this specified in the gemspec. I can't seem to figure out how some of my gems have this and more recently pushed ones do not. Was there a time in the past where rubygems just figured these out automatically?

    Hi Jarrett,
    Sorry about the delay in response.

    How come I see some gems have links on the sidebar for things like Source Code and Bug Tracker that do not have this specified in the gemspec.

    We have a legacy linkset resource which is used as the fallback if you don't specify them in the gemspec. You can use metadata attribute of gemspec to set/update those links. Read more

    So older gems defaulted to having those links but new ones need to have
    them specified is what you’re telling me? Thanks

    All gems fallback to the linkset values previously set using UI, including new releases. If you need to update or set any of the old values, please use the new metadata attribute format.
    Please let us know the gem where you can't see the sidebar links, and we can tell you the exact reason/issue.
