how do i get rid of that shlib-policy-missing-suffix rpmlint warning?

Usually rpmlint -i give you reason and solution, in this case:
Your package containing shared libraries does not end in a digit and
should probably be split.

I figured that out too, but the two libraries in question are not used by
anything else... why do they need to go into a subpackage at all?

In general, this has nothing to do with the Build Service itself, but with its
content. So opensuse-packaging or -factory would be a better place to ask such

libraries might not yet be used by other packages, but their purpose is that
they will at some point of time (or making them a lib is pointless and the
code should just compiled into the app).

Therefore we have a policy here to make it possible to install multiple
versions of a lib (since there might come later an incompatible update, no one
knows this yet)
