Package: libpkg-guide
Version: 0.0.20070413
Severity: serious

The libpkg-guide that has been packaged and is now in the archive gives
recommendations regarding -dev package naming which are not at all
representative of a consensus in Debian.  We already have problems with
library maintainers inserting sonames into their -dev package names based on
the unclear/misguided advice of this document; shipping it in a stable
release would be seen by many as an endorsement by the Debian project, and
no such endorsement exists.  There *particularly* isn't such an endorsement
from the Debian release team, for whom gratuitous -dev package name changes
make library transitions more difficult by orders of magnitude.

This package should not be included in a stable release until the
recommendations have been revised to reflect best practices.
