Hi all,

thanks for setting up the Debian package for the JAS jar and doc files.

There was some interest in having a complete and up-to-date package within the MathLibre maintainers. Prof. Hamada has given me some advice in setting up such a package for the use within MathLibre:

With this I am able to produce the following package:


however, I am not able to setup the dependencies and find the correct location outside of /usr/local for Debian. Could you give some help on this, or can you use this .deb to produce a correct package?

I have a (MathLibre) Debian VM (on OpenSUSE) where I can reproduce and publish the above .deb soon after a new release.
