Thanks, this was extremly helpful (after adding 

One remaining question:  I frequently observed that uscan gave up with something
like in this case:

uscan info: Requesting URL:
uscan warn: In directory ., downloading
  http://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/toolbox/ncbi_tools/old/20160908/ncbi.tar.gz failed: 
500 read timeout
uscan info: Failed to download upstream package: 20160908

The solution in this case is always to simply use the download URL with wget.

Am I the only one who observes that uscan is way less robust in the actual
download process than wget or is this simply a bug in uscan?

Kind regards
