I suggest to rename your dev package to libpsm2-dev. The SOVERSION
shouldn't be part of the dev package, unless there is a good reason for it. See

Having the SOVERSION in the dev package name puts a burden on packagers
building against it, since they have to (usually unnecessarily) update
their build dependencies every time the SOVERSION changes.

Thanks a lot for packaging libpsm2. I had this on my agenda for a long
time but didn't get around doing it ...
