Wow, I still managed to botch it. :-(

Moreover the upstream tarball is not used anyway, as there are files
lacking in it, which I found out after reading debian/README.source.
Following the recipe there I was able to actually make a local package
of ublock-origin 1.16.21rc0, although that involved more manual steps
than I would have liked.

Still, the watch file is useful for tracker.debian.org.

Better use the attached version which does not eat the first digit of the
upstream version in ublock-origin_*.orig.tar.gz.
