A subset of the reports of debian-watch-file-is-missing for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 1024 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.
The extended description of this tag is:
This source package is not Debian-native but it does not have a debian/watch file. This file is used for automatic detection of new upstream versions by the Debian External Health Status project and other project infrastructure. If this package is maintained upstream, please consider adding a debian/watch file to detect new releases.
If the package is not maintained upstream or if upstream uses a distribution mechanism that cannot be meaningfully monitored by uscan and the Debian External Health Status project, please consider adding a debian/watch file containing only comments documenting the situation.
Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 4.11 (Optional upstream source location:
debian/watch) and the uscan(1) manual page for details.
