Linked package not showing up in repo

I have a pushed docker image (package) to a gitea organization. Via the web ui I have linked it to the corresponding repo that built it. When I visit that repo I see no “packages” link as suggested would appear.

Am I missing something? or is this a bug.

Running gitea
Gitea Version
1.17.2 built with GNU Make 4.1, go1.18.6 : bindata, sqlite, sqlite_unlock_notify

You could enable it in repository settings

Enable what repository settings? Can you be more specific?

if you are looking at a package you can see the link to the linked repo

but

when you are looking at the repo there is no link/tab to any attached packages

I would expect to see another page tab “packages” (like “issues”) if one or more exist linked to the repo but there is none.

Was this never coded by the packages module?

click the settings in repository and check Enable Packages and save.
