Re: xwatch installed in correct section?

I received a bug report on xwatch which I can fix easily.
Here's a change to fix the wrong upload section at the same time
(or change contrib/utils to contrib/x11 and just live with it).
BTW, I wanted the package to be in utils because that's where
related or similar packages are (system monitoring).

So... can anyone answer this for me?  Thanks.
