So - it's not "morning" anymore, but finally I found the time to read the
articles - and a really short summary would read:
- The Name: lib<libraryname><soversion> and lib<libraryname>-dev , if
there is no need for multiple versions of the dev-files.
- The Contents: Any additional binary (such as ppl_lcdd) might go into
lib<libraryname><soversion>-runtime or lib<libraryname>-dev ; Furthermore
only lib<libraryname>-dev may (and should) provide a symbolic link in
/usr/lib/lib<libraryname>.so to /usr/lib/lib<libraryname>.so.<soversion>
Furthermore, it is ok to have multiple libraries in a single package.
Last, but not least, the shlibs-system should be used to provide the
necessary dependency-information - please read and follow
