Idebian-watch-mangles-debian-version-improperly

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. 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.
