  1. Hey Qianqian,
    
    Your package on mentors was uploaded to `unreleased`.
    
    Out of curiosity, any specific reason to why it's not `UNRELEASED` as the changelog mention?
    Did you edit that manually in the .changes or that it a tool?
    
    Again, nothing wrong here, I'm just wondering.

  2. @Baptiste, I think mentors website automatically converts the distribution name to lower cases. I did not commit any manual edit. Have you seen other packages with a capitalized distro name?

  1. I posted this earlier on the mentors mailing list
    
    https://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2020/06/msg00104.html
    
    ----------------
    
    hi there,
    
    I am learning my way towards creating my first Debian package. The specific package I am working on right now is in this ITP bug
    
    https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=962603
    
    at this point, I've uploaded a set of packaging files to salsa
    
    https://salsa.debian.org/fangq/libzmat
    
    
    I'd like to have someone take a look, and help me figure out some of the remaining issues.
    
    Specifically, here are the things I want to fix
    
    1. one of the 3 subpackages is an Octave toolbox (as a mex file). Although the binary was compiled during the packaging process, I wasn't able to find a template to assemble the octave package. can someone point to me if there is a template (for a similar mex-based toolbox) for octave?
    
    2. when running debuild, I got the below warning
    
    dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol deflateBound used by debian/libzmat1/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libzmat.so.1 found in none of the libraries
    
    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.
    
    3. I have two errors from lintian:
    
    E: zmat source: source-is-missing private/zipmat.mexa64
    E: zmat source: source-is-missing octave/linux64/zipmat.mex
    
    these two folders (private/octave) are precompiled binary (mex) files using the same source codes. They are not installed anyways, I am wondering if I can set a flag to skip these files (or run a pre-build script to remove them?)
    
    4. naming convention: did I do this correctly? can I use libzmat or zmat as the main package name?
    
    if you can provide additional feedback on this package, I am very much appreciated.
    
    thanks

  2. Please use lintian-info -t tagname to konw how to fix them.
    
    For example:
    lintian-info -t file-contains-trailing-whitespace
