Idebian-watch-mangles-debian-version-improperly

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The version of this package contains dfsg, ds, or debian, but a misleading upstream version mangling occurs in the debian/watch file. Since the dfsg string is not part of the upstream version and its addition is Debian-specific, the debian/watch file should use the dversionmangle option to remove, instead of adding in uversionmangle, the dfsg before comparing version numbers.

Refer to https://wiki.debian.org/DEHS for details.
