Funny thing... after reading this thread I start searching for such
documentation ;)

From what I have found, the best and seems the only information is 
`man 1 uscan`.

I've added watch files for 6-7 of my packages already, and seems that
it's extremely easy. At least it seems to work ;)

http://www.megastep.org/makeself/makeself-(.*).run debian uupdate

http://download.berlios.de/netpanzer/netpanzer-(.*).tar.bz2 debian uupdate

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/htop/htop-(.*).tar.gz debian uupdate

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/cannonsmash/csmash-(.*).tar.gz debian uupdate

I also looked on some not-mine packages, and sometimes there is:

(.*)\.tar\.gz instead of (.*).tar.gz

I don't know why... or I don't know regexp as good as I should ;)
