I can't disagree. :-) If I knew how to fix it in the watch file, I would do so. > The are two issues here: > > The redirector was designed in the days when there were no directories > on the sf.net files section. I see. One other thing I will mention is that the current reflector does show two occurrences of "boost_1_62_0.tar.bz2". (And just now it even shows the path and a "direct link" that I'm pretty sure weren't present earlier today!) However, both occurrences link to the same reflector URL  that ends up at the wrong URL on sf.net.  https://qa.debian.org/watch/sf.php/boost/boost_1_62_0.tar.bz2 > Your upstream isn't naming snapshot tarballs correctly.

All I will say is that the folks releasing Boost are not novices and likely have a defensible reason for their madness. More to the point: it is out there and if uscan can be made more flexible, it would be appreciated. > or in the boost watch files.
