NOK: http://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatc
NOK: http://packages.debian.org/search?mode=filename&searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatc
NOK: http://packages.debian.org/search?mode=exactfilename&searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatc

OK:  http://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatch
NOK: http://packages.debian.org/search?mode=filename&searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatch
OK:  http://packages.debian.org/search?mode=exactfilename&searchon=contents&keywords=bin%2Fwatch
