... at least not for boost. I downloaded the latest release manually by following the links from boost.org to https://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.62.0/ boost_1_62_0.tar.bz2/download
Then I remembered that Dimitri had written a watch file to use the Files- Excluded facility. So I ran uscan. This leaves me the original download as well as the re-packed tarball. Comparing the original download to my manual download indicated many differences. Running uscan with --verbose led me to the reflector page https:// qa.debian.org/watch/sf.php/boost/ used by uscan. The boost_1_62_0.tar.bz2 link on that page leads to https://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/ snapshots/master/boost_1_62_0.tar.bz2/download Notice the crucial difference: the reflector is using "boost/snapshots/master" whereas the correct URL uses "boost/1.62.0". The snapshots are pulled from the branch tip and are NOT actual releases. So the reflector is listing bad URLs. Who can I contact to get https://qa.debian.org/watch/sf.php/boost/ fixed? Note: I didn't look, so I have no idea if this is a widespread problem with the watch reflector. I'd suggest that people do a spot-check on their own packages to see. Thanks, -Steve
