Adding dependencies for autopkgtest run at Debian CI
We started a discussion on the issue below in the Debian Octave Group
mailing list , but I think it would be better to move it here. I am

parallel”. I think I fixed the problem in version 0.3.0-2 of the package
by adding a dependency on octave-parallel.
I am not really happy with this “fix”, because parallel is not really a

appropriate to make octave-vibes depend on octave-interval, since the
package works perfectly without it (besides the mentioned unit test
It would be perfect if there was a way to add an extra dependency for the
run on Debian CI. I am not sure whether this can be accomplished through
