Bug#58524: libz1 -> zlib1g: version needed?

Package: www.debian.org
Version: N/A

After being rather rudely treated by the tetex-bin maintainers, I gather
this needs to be submitted here.  If this is not the correct place, I

The problem in a nutshell:  The latest version of tetex-bin Depends: on
libz1.  The Packages page for it,[*] however, lists it as depending on
zlib1g.  I'm assuming that this translation is being done by the CGI
script that generates the page (or when the page is updated server-side,
as the case may be), on the premise that zlib1g Provides: libz1.  The
problem is that this is only true as of zlib1g 1:1.1.3-5; I had
1:1.1.3-2, so the install failed, with no obvious way of telling what
was wrong.

I respectfully submit, then, that this automatic libz1 -> zlib1g
translation, at whatever stage it occurs, should include a mention this
minimum version requirement.
