Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.318. That is the most recent version we know about.

The watch file uses an unencrypted transport protocol for the URI such as http:// or ftp://. It is recommended to use a secure transport such as HTTPS for anonymous read-only access.

Upstream may already provide a HTTPS variant of the URI. If not, please contact them and ask them to consider adding one.
