Your get-orig-source target tries to support being invoked from any
directory, but this doesn't work:
You're right. I've used `pwd` now instead of . and it appears to work.
Hmm, didn't help here:
$ ../trunk/debian/rules get-orig-source
py3versions: error parsing Python-Version attribute
uscan --noconf --force-download --rename --download-current-version --destdir=`pwd` ../trunk/debian//..
make: *** [get-orig-source] Error 1
I took a closer look at your watch file:
"uversionmangle=s/\.(tar.*|tgz|zip|gz|bz2)$//i" - why put this stuff to
upstream version in the first place? [*]
stripping dfsg is correct, but stripping cvs, svn etc. parts is wrong.
dversionmangle is supposed to map Debian version to upstream version.
But if you packaged a VCS snapshot, then no upstream version
corresponding to Debian version exist.
Stripping "pre" (or more generally: ~<something>) is even worse, because
it's fooling uscan into thinking that Debian version is newer than it
"pasv" - this makes no sense for HTTP. (Even for FTP, I don't believe
there's much point in putting this option to debian/watch.)
"-?_?" - this should have probably been "[-_]".
"([\d+\.]+|\d+)" is equivalent to much simpler "([\d+.]+)". Though maybe
you actually meant "((\d+\.)+|\d+)", which is something different.
"(tar.*|tgz|zip|gz|bz2|)" - you should use non-capturing (?:...) here to
fix [*]. Also, I don't see any point in keeping "gz", "bz2" or an empty
string in the alternative.
