dmraid uses non-standard soname versioning:
Could you remove the .rcX suffix?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Let's update this to incorporate similar clean-ups to those we recently applied to lvm2.

the 'standard' naming is provided.
The .rcX is for the dmraid versioning purpose.
Do you feel this really mandatory to get removed?
dmraid is the only package in RHEL which didn't pass the test.
Every other package (okay, except openssl which has a letter in the version) has only numbers and dots in the .so version.
From release-engineering perspective, I'd like to have it changed.
Anytime you change package version, soname changes as well and we have to make sure all dependant packages are rebuilt.
the packages (namely python-pyblock) are being linked against libdmraid.so.1,
not the ".rcX" sufficed one anyway, hence no issue with ".rcX" changes.
Then this is only about the glob hitting "rcX", no?
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
Closing because linking happens vs. numerically suffixed lib.
