Wdebian-watch-not-mangling-version

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

The version of this package contains dfsg, ds, or debian, which normally indicates that the upstream source has been repackaged to comply with the Debian Free Software Guidelines (or similar reason), but there is no version mangling in the debian/watch file. Since the dfsg string is not part of the upstream version, the debian/watch file should use the dversionmangle option to remove the dfsg before version number comparison.

Please refer to the uscan(1) manual page and https://wiki.debian.org/DEHS for details.
