libtool and sonames
i am packaging a libtoolized library and i am havin some problems
on how to name the resulting package. the program (elastiC) is in early
beta and the libelastic API changes quite a lot. at now the libtool
-version-info is 14:1:0, resulting in libelastic.so.14.0.1. so should
i name the package libelastic14? but next version will have 15:1:0
(the API changes quite a lot as i said), resulting in libelastic.so.15.0.2
and so on...
i would very much prefer to version the library 0.14, 0.15
(or 0.0.14, 0.0.15) and so on, switching to 1.x.x when backward
incompatibilities are added (plain old debian way.) what should i do?
simply go on and enforce my own versioning scheme? any good algorithm
to choose version numbers from libtool version info?
