Package: cutechess
Version: 20111114+0.4.2+0.0.1-1
Severity: serious

The lib, commandline client and gui should be separate packages.

There should be a -dev package. The lib should treat sonames and symbols 

See the excerpt of the README.Debian:

############ README
Why including lib, commandline client and gui in one package

There are several reasons:
        - The upstream sources are under heavy development and changes to the 
lib likely
        - Upgrading is a pain, if no so-names are managed upstream
        - No other software is using the lib

There will be a RC-bug filed against this package as long as this situation 
remains. This bug 
will prevent cutechess to go into testing.
