GoogleCode redirector

  |   Source

I recently saw a couple of bugreports all complaining about debian/watch files failing with GoogleCode. Since I'm myself maintaining some packages whose upstream authors use Google as their hoster, I felt it was a good idea to offer a service for uscan(1) and DEHS.

You can reach the service at http://googlecode.debian.net.

To use it in your debian/watch, just use:

http://googlecode.debian.net/p/<project>/<regex>

For example:

http://googlecode.debian.net/p/pyproj/pyproj-(+.*).tar.gz

The source code is available at debian-it.it (you should give this url to git clone). This service is currently in beta testing; suggestions and patches are more than welcome! Also, feel free to report any issue you might encounter!
