Follow-up Comment #1, bug #15364 (project freeciv):

The following would be a valid watch file for downloads (replace the
whole content of the old watch file):


# stable releases freeciv-(.*)\.tar\.gz

# beta releases and release candidates
#opts=uversionmangle=s/-/~/;tr/A-Z/a-z/ \
# freeciv-(.*)\.tar\.gz

The part for beta and RCs (commented) does some magic to the version number
so that
 * release candidates are sorted after beta releases
 * beta and release candidates are sorted before stable releases
when comparing version numbers the Debian way:
2.1.X < 2.2.0~betaX < 2.2.0~rcX < 2.2.0 < 2.3.X

Instead of .tar.gz also .tar.bz2 should work for newer versions of Debian and
derived distributions.
