Why should he have to gain any credibility in your eyes ? Were you about to
help him dealing with this ?

Well, ok SONAME is a dangerous thing, warning, warning !!
In the mean time, it's still possible for a DM to upload a different soname in
the same binary package, which would result in an even worse mess, right ?
I don't like your tone, it's pedantic, because somehow it's legitimate to ask
this kind of questions regarding the potential harm he already has the right
to do with the DM upload rights. And I believe you didn't even look at his
package (neither did I by the way...)
