Hmmm... this one seems to be an upsteam problem. Something is broken
with the directory listing at the download location.
Look in the watch file for oolite (non-free) to see an example for a
watch file working with berlios upstream.
That scheme is a second type of URL, iirc.
The first part should be something along the lines of:
|tuxracer-extras* | N/A | error | - | - |
There is no real upstream; the orig.tar.gz is a composition of several
courses I downloaded from different locations; it's impossible to create
a usefull watchfile for that (well; we could check the version at
ftp.debian.org just so we see no error message...)
I think the whole watch file could be omitted for such packages.
