Maybe I'm overly cautious here, but the sentence in question reads

'All libraries must have a shared version in the lib package and a static 
 version in the lib-dev package.' (sect. 11.2).

In my view this mandates a shared and a static lib of each packages. I may
be meant to only say which variant has to go where, but then it appears badly
worded to me. Anyway, if this is not the first static-only package in the
archive, it'll just upload it as-is. Thanks for the info!
