You are welcome. I was somehow forced to do this since I need a
working singularity. ;-)

I was confused as well and you are right that if you point the watch
file at .*/v? you get the plain singularity code. However the tarball
that is fetched by the watch file is
.*/singularity- (which I now fixed to .*/singularity-ce)
and this contains the vendor/ directory.

I just took over what former Uploaders decided for. My goal is now to
check what vendored code copies can be removed for the new version.
