:-) OK, I'll do so.
By chance I ran into another watch file problem:
-- Downloading updated package qvalue_1.30.0.tar.gz
uscan warning: In directory ., downloading
http://www.bioconductor.org/../src/contrib/qvalue_1.30.0.tar.gz failed: 400 Bad Request
Upstream hides their source directory somehow and a
ends up in 404 (so even if the relative URL would be properly resolved a
download might fail). So while we at least can find out the proper new
version number it requires manual download. Any idea?
