pslist is a simple utility to list the process IDs (PIDs) of a process and
all its children, and its children's children, and so on.  If invoked with
a command name which ends in 'kill', it sends a signal to a selected group
of processes.  If invoked with a command name which ends in 'renice',
it sets the nice level of the selected group of processes.

* Switch the watch file back to pgpsigurlmangle, since pgpmode=auto may
silently ignore a missing upstream signature.
* Use the v4 substitution variables in the watch file.
* Bump the debhelper compatibility level to 10 with no changes.
* Switch various upstream and Debian URLs to the HTTPS scheme.
* Make the binary package architecture-independent.

the upstream PGP key to check against
