I have two comments:

1. It's linking with openssl, and claiming to be LGPL, which 
  I understand to be incompatible.

2. I think the upstream either doesn't care or much understand 
  shared library versioning; it's a nascent shared library which 
  will undergo several revisions of ABI/API changes.
  I would consider calling its SONAME 'libssh.so.0' to be 
  something prone to failure.

A F.A.Q. I assembled for shared libraries in Debian is available here, 
it might help you as a starting point:
