That seems to have been fixed by someone already.

I've just fixed the two last invalid ones. That leaves us with two
missing ones:
* libtext-roman-perl
From the changelog by Gunnar:
  * Upstream repository is gone; CPAN has only outdated packages.
    Killing debian/watch, as it serves no purpose anymore
Can we resurrect the file? If only to prevent error messages ...
* dh-make-perl
Well :-)      
Should we write a watch file pointing to the Debian archive?

Yup, that's a uscan/watchfile issue.
