Package: npm2deb
Version: 0.2.5-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Using git repo url in debian/watch file creates the following issues.

1. Tags in git repo need not match with npm versions, in such cases npm2deb 
fails to get exact version that npm registry holds
2. In some packages even files are not in sync with npm registry. See #840170

So, npm2deb should use npm registry url in debian/watch file
