There's still one thing to bear in mind with these buttons: even if you
click one of them and the redirection after login is implemented, you
get back to the package page and you have to click the button again. I
don't think this is a good user experience.

A solution would be to

* send the login page something that doesn't let it redirect back to
the package page, but to the action page,


* don't use these false buttons at all, but always link to the correct
pages, and let those decide whether a user has the permission to do this
action and if not, redirect to the login page: this way the login page
will redirect back to the action page.

I'd go for the second approach.

Please tell what you think about it.

Best, Marcel
