reassign 635175 libgjs-dev
found 635175 1.29.0-1
retitle 635175 exposes mozjs API without reflecting SONAME bumps in its own SONAME
affects 635175 gnome-shell

gjs-internals-1.0.pc.in says:

Requires: gjs-1.0 gobject-introspection-1.0 @JS_PACKAGE@
Name: gjs-internals-1.0
Description: Internal API for gjs (for modules and embedders); uses mozjs
Version: @VERSION@

where @JS_PACKAGE@ is either mozjs185 or mozilla-js.

I think this is actually a bug in gjs: if it exposes mozjs types, etc. in its
public API (it seems it does), surely it should bump its SONAME every time
mozjs does?

Perhaps #635171 should also be merged with this bug, but I haven't done so
(I'm not a maintainer of any related package, just an interested GNOME 3 user).
