W vcs-field-uses-not-recommended-uri-format

All reports of vcs-field-uses-not-recommended-uri-format for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The VCS-* field uses a URI which doesn't match the recommended format, but still looks valid. Examples for not recommended URI formats are protocols that require authentication (like SSH). Instead where possible you should provide a URI that is accessible for everyone without authentication.

This renders debcheckout(1) unusable in these cases.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: fields/vcs, Type: binary, udeb, source
