Almost there :)

What you should do in this case is to re-compress the tarfile with
something like "bzcat some.tar.bz2 | gzip -9 > some.tar.gz". This way
the tar itself will remain exactly the same. In any case, no need to
create anything from scratch!

You don't need to change debian/watch, just use (?:....) for grouping
without capturing. See below.

Actually, debian/watch does not work. Here's what works for berlios
(and for both bz2 and gz):

opts=downloadurlmangle=s/prdownload/download/ \
  http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1681 \

I see you've abandoned all detailed changelog entries for 1.125-1.
a) use only "initial release (closes #...)" for 1.125 and drop 1.108
b) add to 1.125-1 entry the changes made *in the packagig* since 1.108

I'd go with a)
