Re: Packging jModelTest for Debian and versioning
it took some time since the last mail exchange but as I mentioned before
we need to work on the third party JARs to build them from source as
separate packages. I managed to do this now for alter.jar, pal.jar and
prottest.jar (fetching latest version 3.4 instead of 3.0 - hope this is
fine). The only remaining bio-related JAR is lib/readseq.jar.
We had some previous discussion on the Debian Med mailing list which
lead to the conclusion that this code could at best shipped under
non-free if the authors are not responsive. Since we did not got any
response from the authors we somehow assume that the readseq2 project is
You might check whether jmodeltest would be able to use
instead to not relay on a non-free project with uncertain maintenance
