This naming is based on the debian way of naming. I agree that may be
confusing if you compare to the original name. But this make sense to me
to add the _devel suffix since it is a real devel package. If you look
to its content, same kind of content for other libs are devel packages.
x11_fontsproto_devel is maybe closer to the original.
BTW, you will certainly never have to install it by yourself since it is
mostly a depend file (i personnaly never installed this one on a linux box).
Using this scheme or another, is not the major issue for me. I would
only like we all agree on the same naming, and be sure to have a
conclusion (i asked another question after the discussion between you
and Phil...). I'm asking this to be sure there is no more pending
question about this before more work is done.
