Visibility: info

The package installs an unstripped static library.

Please note, that static libraries have to be stripped with the --strip-debug option. You will probably also want to use --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note to avoid the static-library-has-unneeded-section tag.

dh_strip (after debhelper/9.20150811) will do this automatically for you.
