[Pkg-octave-devel] uscan is not working for the octave-forge pkgs

The uscan tool ceased to work for the octave-forge pacakges.  It seems to be
a permanent error in the QA script and it yields the following error message:

$ uscan --verbose
-- Scanning for watchfiles in .
-- Found watchfile in ./debian
-- In debian/watch, processing watchfile line:
uscan warning: In watchfile debian/watch, reading webpage
  http://qa.debian.org/watch/sf.php/octave/ failed: 500 Can't connect to garr.dl.sourceforge.net:80 (connect: timeout)
-- Scan finished

I propose to change the debian/watch files according to the patch below.  It
will be faster and guaranteed to work.  If nobody objects I will make the
changes in SVN soon.
