Maybe that's partially the case...

There's one thing in this commit which I consider quite ugly and
unnecessary: A man page being under
/usr/lib/debian-med/share/man/man1/gmt.1.gz and then only symlinked to

IMHO that's for two reasons: /usr/lib/debian-med/bin/gmt doesn't need
a man page from a policy point of view, only
/usr/bin/genome-model-tools does. And then there is a never to be
found man page under /usr/lib. (A man page under /usr/lib? Come on!
That's an FHS violation. Or rather was until Debian weakend it for the
systemd guys.)

So rather than moving the man page from /usr/share/man/man1/gmt.1.gz
to /usr/lib/debian-med/share/man/man1/gmt.1.gz and then symlinking
that to /usr/share/man/man1/genome-model-tools.1.gz, I'd just rename
/usr/share/man/man1/gmt.1.gz to
/usr/share/man/man1/genome-model-tools.1.gz -- Everything else is IMHO
unnecessary complexity with horribly non-standard paths.

And you would also spare the explicit gzip call and one of the lines
in debian/dirs.

Additionally there seems trailing whitespace in debian/links, but the
affected line will be gone anyways if the above is fixed as suggested.

Further there is a change in debian/control which is not mentioned in
the changelog entry nor seems to be related to the rest of the commit:
A line "Recommends: med-config (>= 2.1)" has been added. Please add at
least an according changelog entry for that or remove it again (if it
was committed accidentially).
