in the real world, you'd not do this. You would add the repository to your
/etc/apt/sources.list and do eg
 apt-get install tei-p5-database

the "_all" means "it works on all architectures"

indeed, and I need to fix that, as the packages are all architecture
agnostic, since they have no binaries

so just your immediate reaction is a good test, thanks!
