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.
