To avoid a false impression that you ignored the watch file by
laziness and to inform an actual status, I created three fake
packages. These packages say if there no upstream site, if there no
release in upstream site or if the upstream site there a package but
Some people are using my fake packages and you can see the result in
my DDPO. Look at 0.No-Site, 0.No-Release and 0.No-Track.
Feel free if you want to use this solution.
