Watch Wizard minor bugs: whom to contact?
I have a package "mn-fit" whose upstream puts underscores in the program
version, as in "5_12". For Debian packaging I turn these into periods,
as in "5.12". A little-known feature of uscan lets me deal with this
automatically for new upstream releases by permitting two separate
parenthesized expressions that are then joined by a period. (My
knowledge of this trick is thanks to Niv Altivanik,
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/04/msg00188.html ) My
v[0-9_]*/mn_fit_v([0-9]*)_([0-9]*)\.tar\.gz debian uupdate
The problem is that the Watch Wizard doesn't understand this syntax - I
guess it just ignores the second set of parentheses - and thinks the
upstream version is 5, not 5_12 or 5.12. See for instance
Possibly related is that said web page also has a problem with "Debian
Version"; it is listed as 5.12 but should actually be 5.12-1. I suppose
this is why the "Copyright" link on that page is broken.
Whom should I contact about these bugs?
