with this stance? If so, the shlib-policy check of rpmlint may need to
be relaxed to allow the extra dash when $pkgname =~ /\d\w$/ (I don't
see it yet necessary for \d\w+).
It's not only rpmlint that might be confused with an "additional" dash
in your package name. Other scripts and maybe even packages might need
adaption, too (and I'm sure we will miss some in the first run).
The policy itself is clear: no dash between the name and the library
version. So following your suggestion would need an adapted policy and
work on many other places.
With kind regards,
