W debian-watch-lacks-sourceforge-redirector

The watch file specifies a SourceForge page or download server directly. This is not recommended; SourceForge changes their download servers and website periodically, requiring watch files to be modified every time. Instead, use the qa.debian.org redirector by using the magic URL:

http://sf.net/<project>/<tar-name>-(.+).tar.gz

replacing <project> with the name of the SourceForge project and <tar-name> with the name of the tarball distributed within that project. Adjust the filename regex as necessary.

Visibility: warning
