Re: [opensuse-packaging] So files in devel Packages?

*.so files are used by the link editor (ld) to create executables, they
are not used at runtime, where the *.so.* files are used instead (and *.so
usually are just softlinks to *.so.*).

I know of at least one package that uses the -revision flag to libtool which
results in libsomething-x.y.z.so and an identical soname. So the rule to
package .so files in -devel isn't always right.
