non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink



i am confused about links and files in lib packages. lintian reports
the following error on one of the packages i am sponsoring:

  W: libvformat1: non-dev-pkg-with-shlib-symlink
     usr/lib/libvformat.so.0.0.0 usr/lib/libvformat.so

the libvformat1_... package includes

  ./usr/lib/libvformat.so.0.0.0
  ./usr/lib/libvformat.so.0 -> libvformat.so.0.0.0
  ./usr/lib/libvformat.so -> libvformat.so.0.0.0
  
and the -dev package includes just the .a file.

I don't know what is right when it comes to libraries, and i can't
find a good documentation on it. would anyone enlighten me?
