debian-watch-mangles-upstream-version-improperly

The version of this package contains alpha, beta, or rc, but a misleading Debian version mangling occurs in the debian/watch file. You should use the uversionmangle option instead of dversionmangle so that the prerelease is sorted by uscan before a possible future final release.

For more information please consult:

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit c1c05b0. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/watch.
