my suggestion for multiple upstream tar balls
I was thinking about this. Since packages are supposed to be worth the
packaging overhead what do you do about a series of very small plugins
consisting of just a few lines? CPAN is full of such modules and
libcgi-application-plugins-perl is another good example.
The obvious thing to me would seem to be to store the current versions in
This file would consist of lines of the form
URL space version-number new-line.
Although human readable and part of the packaging source code, it would
be maintained entirely by uscan and driven by the watch file. uscan
would not bother to create a versions file if there was only one rule in
the watch file and the version number in debian/changelog made sense to it.
