I intend to package "multimix", a FORTRAN program for clustering
observations. It is comparable to "autoclass" which I have already
packaged. My draft control file is attached.
Incidentally, I am using a Build-Depends line as called for by the
lastest policy. However, I'm getting warnings on every build:
dpkg-source: warning: unknown information field Build-Depends in input
data in package's section of control info file
I assume that's harmless? I have version 1.6.1 of dpkg-dev installed.

Description: automatic classification or clustering
multimix fits a mixture of multivariate distributions to a set of
observations by maximum likelihood using the EM algorithm. The
emphasis is less on parameter estimation than on the use of the
estimated component distributions to cluster the data. The program
is designed to cluster multivariate data with categorical and
continuous variables and possibly with missing values.
