Bug#581352: debian-policy: libtool la files are still encouraged in the policy (contrary to the release goal)
At this end of "10.2 Libraries", there are several lines about including la
files in binary packages, in particular:
Packages that use libtool to create shared libraries should include the .la
files in the -dev package
This is in contradiction to the current release goal
I think that policy must be adapted to reflect the current position of Debian
on this subject.
