I like dehs. But it don't work, if a package don't have a watch file. 

Because of this, I like to add/fix watch files to _all_ packages. We can
make some packages per script, but some packages must fixed with a hand
written watch file.

I don't like to "mass bug filling" and I don't like to wait for all this
new uploads. 

one solution:
 - watch ovverride:
   dehs use the debian/watch from the package source. If the package
   don't have a debian/watch, it use its own watch for this
   package (if its has a own). 
   If a debian/watch from the package source don't work, it use its
   own watch. 
 - We ask some debian user to submit the debian/watch for there
   packages. With this we can get a watch for any debian package in
   some months. 
   But we need to manage this work. 
   We need some system, that
     1.) send a user on request the copyright file of a package with out 
         a working watchfile
     2.) get a watch file some this users
     3.) and test it and put this watch file in the dehs ovverride
