We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

Visibility: warning

The symbols file contains the placeholder #PACKAGE# in the Build-Depends-Package field. During the build process, it will be replaced with the wrong value. There is no placeholder that works.

The development package for your shared library must be stated explicitly.

With the information, dpkg-shlibdeps(1) can calculate the installation prerequisites for your package from the build prerequisites.
