It would be good if the policy would use the same naming conventions as
the debhelper. Currently, the Debian Policy states (8.6.4)

| if you have multiple binary packages, you might want to call it
| debian/shlibs.package instead
while dh_installdeb(1) means

| package.shlibs
|     These control files are installed into the DEBIAN directory.

which was really confusing for me.

Thank you very much. Now I hope to get everything at the right place...

I have the feeling, that lintian is quite lazy about shared libs; at
least it does not complain about a missing shlibs file.

Best regards
