Package: devscripts
Version: 2.16.8
Severity: normal


With the following watch file for my rlinetd package

  # control file for the uscan(1) tool
  opts="pgpmode=next" \
          (?:.*)/@PACKAGE@@ANY_VERSION@@ARCHIVE_EXT@ debian
  opts="pgpmode=previous" \
          (?:.*)/@PACKAGE@@ANY_VERSION@@SIGNATURE_EXT@ previous

uscan --verbose shows this:

The `Unable to set versionmode=prev for the line without opts=pgpmode=prev' 
warning is really confusing, as it does not really says what is wrong, and 
what I as a user can do to get rid of it. Not to mention that it
suggests replacing `pgpmode=previous' (taken from the man page) with 
`pgpmode=prev' in the watch file...

It took me some time to discover that the warning really means that the
locally downloaded version is just the same as the latest remote version...
