You could make a lintian-brush filter to make Janitor prepare the change for you on next upload. In the meantime, I don't think there's a better way of tracking changes than to take a copy of all the affected watch files and uscan them locally/in CI. Watch files, homepage urls, signing keys are all just metadata that can occasionally change. > We could perhaps handle that with uscan then each time GitHub changes > its website, only uscan should be updated. > > IDEA 1: create a uscan macro > IDEA 2: create a uscan option: Sounds like you're asking for a new github redirector on qa.debian.org as there is for sf.net, which could use the official api for stability.
