yep.... if you use something like libtool (and i know you do :) )
and maybe you use -rpath parameter (and i know you used it until 7.4.2)
please check if it is really needed. if it weren't necessary you could
do a very nice thing dropping it... :)
moreover, if you start doing libraries (and, again, i know you do that
kind of things :)) ) please do the best and not only the better...
(i know that many other like me could well code something instead of
chatting on mailing lists)
why libcurl.so.0.0.0 if it is 7.4.2 or something else?!? say that you
make a change in the interface of libcurl, as soon as i package it my
system break. i start to see some package that depends on libcurl (php4-curl).
if you don't set the correct version in libraries and if you don't change
the major one when you modify the interface *all* the packages that are
linked dynamically against it BREAK! i cannot guarantee that as soon as
i upload the debian package of a libcurl suddenly all the packages that
depend on it are being recompiled as soon as possible.
only if i can keep two version of the same library i can guarantee that the
old binaries, not yet compiled against the new version, still work. at
the same time the new compiled binaries go with the new library.
if libcurl is *always* named libcurl.so.0.0.0 i cannot keep two version of it.
do i seem too picky? :) is this kind of wishes the one you are looking for?
i could be completely wrong on everything i wrote here, this is the reason
because of i still hadn't posted any of them.
PS why this list is so ssllooww?
