DEP5: proposed versioned url for Format: does not work


Please Cc: me, I am not subscribed to this list.

The current version of DEP-5 encourages people to use versioned url for
the Format: Field, as far as I can see from the description of this
field, and the way the examples.

However, using the proposed expression in the description of the Format:
field (line 137 of rev 174):
yields an 400 error, because svn.debian.org/wsvn is being rewritten to
http://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc, and the op=file operand is not valid
for viewvc.

This is a minor issue,but I would propose to change it to
if the Format field should point to a specific svn version of the
document. However, as far as I understand from [1,2], one might expect a
more readable and stable url as soon as #609160 is fixed.

In the mean time, would you recommend to use
as a valid Format: url?
