I wasn't sure where to post this. So I tried here.

I am going to follow up on the ABI version number stuff in proj. I do
know that is how this works. I am a software developer. I am checking
with the proj people to see how they are tracking the ABI
compatibility. For as long as I have used proj, I do not recall seeing
this number reported. Since I link against -lproj, my Makefiles just
reference the current development RPM that is installed.

I didn't mention that there is also a libproj0 on OBS. I don't think
that is ABI version 0. Maybe it is before proj defined ABI version

Perhaps one should use a label like ABIversion in the spec file. Then
it is more obvious that this is where the number is from. There is no
guarantee that everyone setting this number is doing so for the same
