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 Comments?
