Here's in my watch file for gtklp[1]:

# Site		Directory		Pattern			Version	Script
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gtklp/gtklp-(.*)\.src\.tar\.gz	debian	uupdate

Works fine for me; in fact, when it reads the SourceForge repos, it sees
the latest version as 1.0pre3, when in reality it's 1.0c. I really
should convince upstream to change they way he versions his software. =(
