Not the first time this has happened. It's reviewer's responsibility
to not approve such packages.

Current guidelines disallow static libs, reviewers point that out,
packagers make up a soname and version, and reviewers accept it. Instead,
they ought to reject such packages and request involvement of upstream
developers in deciding on a soname and library versioning scheme.
