If you are sure that they use only dots and numbers, you may wish to
use ([\d\.]+) instead of (.*) for versioning. 

Could you please tell us the package you are interested in, if this
doesn't help?



P.S. [OT] For sf.net, if you want a standard directory listing instead of
using the watch sf.net workaround, try
http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/<package>, for example:

Kumar Appaiah,
458, Jamuna Hostel,
Indian Institute of Technology Madras,
Chennai - 600 036
