Hi,

What's the proper way of naming a lang package that goes with a shared
library following the shared library policy?

Eg: the libgsasl source package has a libgsasl7 package. So far so good.
But it has translations, so should the translations go in libgsasl-lang
or libgsasl7-lang?

If it's a libgsasl.mo, then the files will conflict anyway, so there is little
point in pretending you can install them side by side: libgasl-lang.

But there comes a catch: you can't require that package from the library - or
only using a >= - otherwise you won't be able to install the libraries side by
side.

Greetings, Stephan
