I'd like to put a note on my page of updated packages at  From this
thread (and vague memories of previous ones) I believe this is due to
the running of autoconf, right?  If so does this issue of renaming "so"
to "0" *only* occur when a package's autoconf/automake stuff needs
updating?  Whilst I acknowledge the problem is a major one, the affected
audience is relatively small (i.e. *usually* only maintainers/developers
of packages).

Thanks for any clarification you can provide,
