Upstream stopped doing real releases a while back although hopefully will
again do some someday. Currently, all that's available is nightly
snapshots. I can:
* Keep pointing the watch file at the actual official release location in
the hope that upstream will eventually release a newer official version.
* Point the watch file at the daily snapshots and have it always be out of
date because I'm not going to release new versions of gnubg daily.
* Delete the watch file.
Which would you rather I do? I personally think the first option is the
best, which is why I'm doing it, but I don't care that much.
