although, I've already added zlib1g-dev to Build-Depends and zlib1g to the Depends fields, I am wondering what else do I need to add.
The libzmat1.so.1 library needs to link against libz.so too. Probably
this needs to be fixed upstream.

hi Paul,

I listed zlib1g in the Depends section, isn't it the provider of libz.so?


These precompiled binaries should be removed from the upstream source
repository and tarballs and always built from source at build time. If
upstream refuses to do that, you should remove them from the
orig.tar.gz before uploading your package. Using the Files-Excluded
feature of uscan is a reasonable way to achieve that.

I am the upstream author of this toolbox. I included those precompiled
mex files because most of my users do not have a dev environment to compile.

I will remove them from the orig tarball then.

The source package name should be the same as the upstream source
repository name (so zmat) and the binary package name should be named
after the SONAME of the library binary (so libzmat1).

Boyuan in an earlier message suggested to use libzmat instead of libzmat1. I've changed my control files on salsa


moving forward, to make these suggested changes, do I need to reupload the package to mentors?
