packaging libraries with no versioned .so files



Hi there,

The packaging guidelines:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Devel_Packages

recommend that unversioned .so libraries should go into a -devel
package.  I'm reviewing a package, eclib, that has no versioned .so
libraries at all:

http://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=476398

To satisfy the review requirements submitter put the .so into a -devel
package and suppressed the main eclib package, as there are no
versioned .so to package.  It seems to make more sense to actually
remove the -devel package and include them in the main eclib package.

The guidelines don't appear to cover the case of packages that only
consist of unversioned .so's.  Ideally upstream would add the
versioning, but currently don't support versioning the library.

Either way, I would like to know what the best practice would be in
this case, and ultimately it would be useful if there was an explicit
guideline.

Alex
