Summary0000421: Debian package with control file with zstd compression has extension truncated
DescriptionDebian packages (.deb) that have the control archive compressed with zstd will be named `control.tar.zst`, but the last letter of that filename gets chopped off in the output from `file`.
Steps To Reproduce1. Download attached deb
2. Run `file com.jaidan.testtool_1.0.0_all.deb`
3. Note that it says "with control.tar.zs"
Additional InformationLooking at `magic/Magdir/archive:274`, it looks like it only reads a 14-character long filename for the control archive. That works for `control.tar.gz` and `control.tar.xz`, but `control.tar.zst` is 15 characters long.

TagsNo tags attached.
