Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

W debian-watch-file-specifies-wrong-upstream-version

The watch file specifies an upstream version which exactly matches the version of a debian/changelog entry, this is not a native package, and no version mangling is being done. The version field in a watch file should specify the expected upstream version, not the version of the Debian package. Any epochs and Debian revisions should be removed first or mangled away.

Refer to the uscan(1) manual page for details.
